Personal Information
Graham Davidson

Born in Scotland a long, long time ago, and moved to Canada at an early age.

Graham started Piping at the age of six, he then  joined the White Hackle Pipe Band.

Five years and 10 instructors later Graham joined the Seaforth Highlanders Cadet Pipe Band of Canada.  He was the youngest person ever to join the Cadets.
This is when Graham met Ed Esson MBE. Ed started Graham down the right path and introduced him to Donald Macleod MBE at the Nelson School of Piping.

In the mid 70's, Graham left the Seaforth Highlanders to join the Triumph Street Pipe Band under the direction of Hal Senyk. Triumph Street went overseas to
compete at the World Championships and in 1979 Triumph Street placed fifth; the Drum Corps won the World Drum Corps Championships. This was the first
time a major award left Scotland in the Grade 1 contest.

Graham later joined and became the Pipe Major of the Maple Ridge Legion Pipe Band. In two years the Band went from a humble Grade 3, to winning prizes
in Grade 2.

Graham is now the Band Manager and Instructor for the White Spot Pipe Band.  This Band takes on beginners from 8 to 14. Members may play till they are 18.

Three times Finalist at the BC Piper’s Association Knockout competition, Graham has 10 students and is an Instructor at Coeur d' Alene School of Piping and
Drumming. Graham is an International Teacher, Judge and Recitalist.

Graham is now taking on a new task of forming a new Grade 3 Pipe Band. This involves fund raising for uniforms, new members, practice area and music.
So if anyone out there has a spare million…

Married for 20+ years and the father of three sons'. The journey continues…
