In the 17th century the Cummings were hereditary pipers to the Grant clan chieftains in Badenoch and Strathspey, Scotland. Twenty five years after picking up the bagpipes, Seán Cummings learned he'd unwittingly followed Clan tradition. Seán is a Pipe Corporal with the Sierra Highlanders Pipe band (Reno, NV) and is a founding member of Ol'Cheeky Bastards, a Celtic/punk/Americana/rock band (San Francisco, CA). He is also the founder and host of the Thursday night Celtic music seisiún at Murphy's Irish pub in South Lake Tahoe. Seán makes his living as a musician and as a sales and marketing coach for musicians and other service professionals.
