With respect to piping in a more traditional sense, Kevin has been inspired since a young age by Scottish traditional musicians among his MacDonnell roots and Acadian musicians among his Dugas roots in Digby County, Nova Scotia, as well as the many great Scottish traditional musicians from Inverness County like Kinnon Beaton, Andrea Beaton, and Glenn Graham. Kevin particularly enjoys attending square dances throughout Inverness County and playing for square sets whenever possible. He has previously recorded with the great Cape Breton piano player Mac Morin on his solo album.
Kevin is currently completing a PhD in school and applied child psychology at McGill University in Montreal. He intends on pursuing a career in mental health in childhood intervention and therapy.
