Headlined by the Antipypr himself, bagpipe maestro Neil Anderson, the Full Circle Band was a Celtic-whatever band that just didn't fit into a particular genre. Their sole release, Irish Music in America, Volume Two included high-energy arrangements of traditional music and experimental tunes that by all rights should not have worked. But somehow they pulled off tunes like the bagpipes-meet-Studio 54 "Scottish Disco Set." (I swear I am not making this up.)

Anderson's bandmates were the brothers Jimmy Kelly, Jr. and Denis Kelly. The Full Circle Band, named after Anderson's first post-Seven Nations solo album, toured the festival circuit throughout most of 2000 until Anderson's personal challenges apparently led to the band's dissolution. Their sole release is still available at his website, http://www.antipypr.com.
