Donna Reed

Here's a guy who notoriously played the bagpipes at the closing of a beloved music venue in Raleigh, NC known as 'The Brewery' back in 2011. Yance Covington, professional bagpiper and drummer, talks about those early days of punk and metal bands at the venue; his love of rock music and Scottish Bagpiping; playing in the North Carolina Pipes and Drums Band at NCSU (no easy feat!)  and becoming a member of the Carolina Renaissance Festival. A proud supporter of local bands in the triangle area, he also set up a creative art venue in Garner, NC, where upcoming bands found a place to entertain new audiences. Enjoy!
