Our drummer is a highly qualified and talented percussionist with 26 years of playing experience and is the recipient of 5 solo drumming awards by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association. The Dirge March is captivating when played by our World Class Snare Drummer as a tribute at a Memorial Service. Take a moment to view the video.
