Quinn is front man and founding member of Lucid Druid, a Celtic-fusion band out of Clearwater that Patch profiled in 2011. The band got its start at the Dunedin Brewery's open mic night.

Kandi Bryant, owner of Dunedin Brewery, bought raffle tickets in hopes of winning a set of bagpipes to make up for a set her son lost 12 years ago.
It may have taken 12 years, but karma finally came back around for the Bryant family. Kandi Bryant, owner of Dunedin Brewery, bought three raffle tickets in hopes of winning a $1,600 set of McCallum bagpipes from Lothian Kilt Rentals and Bagpipe Supplies for a City of Dunedin Pipe Band fundraiser in September.

In what was believed to be a serendipitous turn of events, a St. Petersburg Times reporter connected them with a truck driver from Illinois who was placing a "found" ad in Times classifieds for their missing set, according to an April 13, 2000 story in the St. …
