Andrea

My name is Andrea Jean, and I had been searching to learn the pipes for the last few years and finally discovered they were right here under my feet in Gillette, Wyoming. I realized that piping was in my blood, not just from my Irish grandparents, but because they have been a fun and exciting challenge to play this past year.

Being the baby of five children, and of course the cutest; I am currently a high school student. I have been playing the violin for the past eight years but have always admired the sound of the bagpipes. Being part of the Wyoming Pipe and Drum has been like being part of one big family; everyone has been encouraging and fun to work with especially the McElhiney's who have made all of this possible. This past year as a student piper has been quite a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to my future life in piping.

"Sing as if no one were listening"
"Dance as if no one were watching"
"And live each day as if it were your last."
