St. Patrick's Day

This is a time of reverence. In addition to the Castle Shannon Parade, Mike also plays at cemeteries and for American Legion Post 82 events.

Here are some pictures of past weddings that Mike has played in. If you would like your picture removed, please contact Mike via email (Request Services link) and specify which picture it is.
Most of these are pictures of Mike practicing that his family or friends have captured on camera that look inspirational. Don't mind the lack of a kilt as this is what a piper just practicing looks like.
