Ingman plays the bagpipes, specifically the Uilleann pipes, which connects with his Irish heritage, according to UAS. Ingman plans to use the $7,500 award to advance his knowledge and performance by studying with a champion piper and traveling to piper gatherings.

“I was really shocked and surprised when I got the call saying I had won an award,” Ingman said in a release. “This is a truly life changing event and I can’t thank the Rasmuson Foundation enough. It is fantastic how they support the arts in Alaska, and I am grateful to be part of that.”
