Bagpipe instructor in North East New York and Vermont
I have been playing the pipes over forty years. In 1960 I joined the United States Air Force Pipe Band in Washington, D.C. and toured the world, representing the United States. In 1961 I was chosen to be a Whitehouse piper for John F. Kennedy, and in 1963 I played with the Air Force Pipe Band at the President’s graveside. Upon leaving the military, I returned to Glens Falls, NY, where I taught English for thirty years.
During this time, I was Pipe Major of the Adirondack Pipes & Drums of Glens Falls, as well as the Galloway Pipe Band. Currently I perform at weddings, funerals, gatherings and ceremonies throughout Eastern NY and Vermont. I have several uniforms, including a French & Indian War reproduction of the famed 42nd Black Watch.
In addition I give talks on the role of the highlanders during the French & Indian and Revolutionary Wars. -
