Gwen began playing snare drum with Branch 137 Royal Canadian Legion Pipe Band at
age 11 in her hometown of Campbell River.
Since then Gwen has played with a number of bands including the Canadian Cadet
Pipes and Drums which played at both the 1989 Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the
World Pipe Band Championships; Triumph Street Pipe Band (Grade 1); the Maple
Ridge/New Westminster Police Pipe Band (Grade 2) which played numerous times at
the “World’s” in Scotland and the North American championships;
Portland Metro Pipe Band (Grade 3); and since 2007, with the RCMP E.
Division Pipe Band.
The highlight of Gwen’s drumming career was playing at the
1989 Royal Military Tattoo in Edinburgh and the many great frends, music and
band trips over the years.
