I've been playing the bagpipes since I was a junior in high school. Shortly after graduating from high school, I joined the Cameron Highlanders, playing with them and teaching my old high school pipe band while earning my degree in music education. I'm currently the Pipe Sergeant of our Grade 3 band.
I've been playing the pipes for 50 years. I was a competitive piper in the Midwest, with Milwaukee and District Pipe Band. I also taught piping for several years at St. John's Northwestern Military academy and helped run the Shamrock Club Pipe band.
The Minnesota Pipes and Drums is the twin cities' oldest band, established in 1963. We have individual pipers, groups of pipers, or the entire band available for your event. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit. We have a large repertoire of traditional Scottish and Celtic music for your event.
