Kernow Pipes and Drums lead tip Steve at the Menin GateSteve’s interest in drumming began as a young member of his local Army Cadet Force Corps of Drums. He then went on to play in various Pipe Bands around London and the home counties.  He feels very privileged to have played at prestigious events, tattoos and concerts in Germany, France and Belgium. He has played alongside the Irish Guards at the Met Police passing out parades at Hendon as well as the Tower of London, Whitehall Cenotaph, Chelsea Football Club and the Royal Albert Hall. Steve’s most memorable band job was playing alongside HM Royal Marine’s massed bands in Portsmouth.

Steve now loves playing in carnivals and festivals down here in sunny Cornwall and he is now Lead Tip of Kernow Pipes and Drums.
