"Gibson presents an overall view of piping patronage among the Scottish clans which has only been dealt with piecemeal in the past. Such a general survey has not been done before in such a comprehensive manner." Peter Cooke, School of Scottish Studies, University of Edinburgh "Gibson's is a voice which deserves to be heard on the history of the highland bagpipe. His passion for the subject shines through on every page and there can be no denying his knowledge of the sources for piping history, in Gaelic as well as in English and other languages. He has produced another book of great learning." David Waterhouse, University of Toronto, and long-time piping student of late P/M John Wilson (Edinburgh), was formerly in the Pipes and Drums of the 48th Highlanders of Canada.
