Personality and Character

*Excerpt from *BAGPIPES and DRUMS*

"At moments these portrait sessions may seem outrageous and over the top, not in stride with the traditional view that many have of bagpipers and drummers. What is tradition and has not changed is the dedication and love that all of the featured have for playing the tunes that have become staples in the bagpiping world. This book is an appreciation, to show case some in this world in a much brighter, much more contemporary light. I hope that those of you who see this will begin to or have your appreciation grow for this fascinating community as I have."
