Biographical

Bio

Stated learning at 70 . Not with professional  teacher. saw an ad paper looking for people who might want to learn piping, answered ad, and joined the street band.  Played piano and organ for years.  it has been on ongoing challenge and struggle with a ton of poor habits!

Do Jo is working on correcting my poor habits and it is almost like starting from scratch but the best move I could have taken

have 6 grandchildren, live in Lexington Ky, Canadian by birth , US citizen by choice, play a lot of golf and travel.

Band is now a competitive band and the best people ever.. Life is good!
