Meet The FULL CIRCLE BAND:
Neil Anderson -bagpipes of various shapes and sizes, tinwhistles, vocals, mandolin An extremely innovative and respected multi-instrumentalist, Neil has performed with Paddy Keenan, The Battlefield Band, and many others. Neil Anderson was the Piper with 7 Nations at our Games in 1998!
Whether on-stage at a festival in front of 10,000 people, or in the most intimate coffee house setting where the audience is a foot away, Neil's passion and sincerity shine through and promise an exciting, compelling and unpredictable celebration of music and life. Neil's uncanny ability to make his audience an integral part of the show is the mark of a true entertainer who cares about his music and the people who come to hear it. As Neil puts it, "One of the things I love most about what I do is that we don't have fans at our shows- we have friends."
