Donny Earl

donny earl, piper with kernow pipes and drumsBorn and bred in Dumfriesshire, I have been in love with the great highland bagpipes from a very young age. I was never really musically talented and more interested in sport. In 2009 I served afloat with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and met several pipers. I then decided I wanted to learn the bagpipes, with the intention of playing for my mother's 70th birthday. Unfortunately,  this didn't happen, but after laying them down for several years,  I joined the band and fell in love with the music of my nation once again. Kernow Pipes and Drums means a lot to me and I feel very proud to be involved with them!
