Chanter Workshop

kilt_ladyShahna has been a musician since 1987 when she took up the classical guitar. Over the years she has played a number of musical instruments; from guitar, to French horn, harp, and finally bag pipes and drums. She is a member of Kingston’s Rob Roy grade 3 pipe band in which she competes as a snare drummer, and the leading drummer of the Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Highland Regiment’s pipes and drums. She competes solo on drums at a grade 3 level, and made her first foray into solo grade 5 piping last summer.

Her current musical endeavors include learning the Irish, or Uilleann Pipes, and tootling on tin whistles. The guitars in the closet have sent pointed letters that they wish to see the light of day as well.

When she’s not piping and drumming “The Kilt Lady” has been found in past years introducing Music in the Pines goers to the delights of the Kilt, and its many accoutrements.  Otherwise she is a contract editor/proofreader, and a part time merchandiser of books and magazines.
