Who Gibson Piping Services Are

My name is Fraser Gibson and I am a bagpiper for hire based in Toronto, Ontario. I love to play the pipes and have experience playing at a variety of engagements.

About Me

I am a fourth generation piper. I have grown up around bagpipes my entire life. Spending my summers growing up at all of the Highland Games across Ontario and Scotland.

History

My family has a strong history of piping and drumming in Canada and Scotland. My grandfather Duncan Gibson was pipe major of several bands both here in Ontario and Scotland. He has led bands such as the 3M Pipe Band, Clan Farquharson Pipe Band, and many others.

My Uncle Duncan Gibson was a bass drummer with several bands here in Ontario including the Strathroy Legion Pipe Band, Niagara Regional Police Pipe Band, Peel Regional Police Pipe Band and more.

Education

I attended the University of Guelph where I earned by HBsc, in Biomedical Sciences. Currently I am employed in the field of Clinical Research. Currently I am competing with the band as well as in solo piping competitions at the highland games.

I also play frequently with my band in parades in Ontario and Michigan. In 2011 my band and I traveled to compete on the world stage at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow Scotland.
