The 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band, also known as The Scottish Lion - 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band, is a pipe band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Sponsored by the regiment of the same name, the Frasers became the first non-Scottish band to win the World Pipe Band Championships, in the summer of 1987. Under the direction of Pipe Major Bill Livingstone, the band is still active in the competitive pipe band arena to this day. The band has both won the North American Pipe Band Championships (held in Maxville, Ontario) and the Canadian Pipe Band Championships (held in Cambridge, Ontario) a total of twelve times each. The Frasers travel to Scotland each summer to compete at the World's, and have finished in the prize list eleven times. In addition to their competitive activities, the band has always had a mandate and goal to expand the pipe band idiom and to introduce new musical concepts into the genre, through their recordings and concerts.

Their recording Live In Ireland (1987) is regarded by many as the modern pipe band recording. (The interested musicologist will compare that recording with Dysart and DunDonald Pipe Band's Live In Concert, Ballymena, made just a few years earlier, in 1983.) Read more on Last.fm.
