mohawk valley frasers
In 1973, four pipers from the western Mohawk Valley of New York State (Dr. William Forbes, Jim Clough, Tom Carl, and Frank Dugan, Jr.) created a new pipe band in Rome, NY.
The Mohawk Valley Frasers are always looking for student pipers and drummers. No experience is necessary, though accomplished musicians are of course more than welcome.
The desire to enjoy and play bagpipes or drums is all we require. As it is with any instrument, the younger you begin, the better.
However, older students are just as valuable, and we work with many adults who are willing to make the effort.
