Connor started his career
as a piper at the age of 13 under the instruction of
Scott Gajdos. He joined American Celtic in 2006. He
credits himself for convincing his dad (Walt) to join
after telling him about the free food and beer (mostly
the free beer part) served at many of the gigs...although
his father's story is a wee bit different.
Connor's favorite pipe band is Field Marshal Montgomery.
His favorite piper is Jack Lee and a few of his favorite
tunes include Wings, Maries Wedding and Rowan Tree.
He continues his recruiting quest by regularly harassing
one of his HS teachers/inactive ACPB member, Chris Ryan
to re-up for another tour with the band.
Connor is currently a student at Babylon High School.
His future plan is to become a chef and open his own
restaurant where he plans to serve "piping"
hot food. His most outstanding memory with the band
is a toss up between marching in his 1st NYC St. Patrick's
Day parade and watching Scott fly across the bus on
the way home from the Montauk parade.
