Will stir controversy and debate in the piping world
John G. Gibson, a scholar of Gaelic culture and ethnographer who lives in Judique, Nova Scotia, is also the author of Traditional Gaelic Bagpiping, 1745-1945 and The Back o' the Hill.
"Gibson's passion for the subject shines through on every page and there can be no denying his knowledge of the sources for piping history." David Waterhouse, University of Toronto "An excellent work, well researched, splendidly footnoted, a book anyone with an interest in the subject will find a 'must have.'" The Canadian Historical Review "John Gibson has provided in this new book an incredible wealth of information." Mario Champagne, Department of Music, Stanford University "Throughout Old and New World Highland Bagpiping, John Gibson emphasises and decodes the traditional Gaelic social and cultural relationships between many of the clans and families in Scotland and in Cape Breton. Gibson manages to do an exceptional job of this while incorporating his awareness of social differences between classes for each Gaelic Scot and their experiences with piping and pipers." Erin C.M. Grant, University of Guelph
