Anthony loves to sing but realized that his best range was simply loud. And he couldn't carry a tune in a bucket but could stuff a bag under his arm. So this combination led him straight to the pipes.
He's Bohemian by birth but married into a Scottish Clan so he's had a lot of encouragement along the way. He refuses to wear earplugs and as his hearing goes, he sounds better to himself. He loves playing the pipes and being part of the Abilene Pipers.
the pipes by watching performances by some of the world's greatest pipers on movies and on TV, along with his strong Scottish family background, but it wasn't until he watched Eric Rigler pipe at Ronald Reagan's funeral that he decided to play. He has performed for local funerals, parades, school sanctioned events, Abilene Art Walk and the 2005 De Leon Peach and Melon Festival.
