He was terrific with communication leading up to the event, arrived an hour early to be ready to play and wowed everyone at the party. If you'd like to skip the stress, hear amazing music that caters to the crowd and atmosphere and feel comfortable that you are in good hands - Derek is YOUR guitarist."

"Derek is one of the best wedding professionals I have come across. He is so courteous and kind, it makes working with him all the better. He did an INCREDIBLE job at our wedding this past Saturday. His classical guitar during our ceremony was perfect. He was very responsive during the planning process and understanding through out the pandemic. He worked with our musicians at the church without issue. I recommend him wherever I can. Derek, thank you for all your work. We are so happy you were a part of our special day!"

"We had the pleasure of having Derek Macrae play his beautiful classical guitar music for our pandemic-era intimate backyard wedding reception. He played a selection of classical and Celtic choices and some more popular tunes as we prearranged and it really made our event special as it added the warmth of live music and an elegant element to our special event. Would highly recommend Derek’s services - he is a personable and classy gentleman who is a pleasure to deal with. It’s obvious he wants to please his clients with his easy to work with style :) Thank you again Derek for your wonderful contribution to our wedding day!"
