Andrew Gower

Andrew Gower, tenor drummer with Kernow Pipes & DrumsHaving been born and raised in Yorkshire, I have now lived and worked in my adoptive home of Cornwall since 1980.

During the 80`s served voluntary service in Civil Defence/Civil Protection, Emergency Planning and Local Govt, and in the 90`s the Somerset And Cornwall Light Infantry.  Now as a serving Knight Templar, I organise and support events for both local and International Charities. As well as being a local Scout Leader, I also run the family Art Gallery in St.Ives.

I have always loved the sounds of pipes and drums and joined several years after my father, who plays the pipes. I chose to learn and play the tenor drum and I am proud to be part of a very welcoming and friendly band and drum corps. I enjoy the camaraderie and challenges the band brings and I am now honoured to have been appointed the band's Drum Major.
