John Goff

I began piping at the age of 14 under the tutelage of Campbell Naismith, the uncle to James Naismith. I competed solo as well as in pipe bands throughout the Southern California area in the mid to late '80s. I've won various prizes from 1st place medals to Amatuer Piobaireachd winner at the age of 17. I also competed in the Grade 2 pipe band of the House of Scotland where we rose to West Coast champions in the late '80s. I then moved from the pipe band world to record bagpipes with various rock bands, most notably a heavy metal band called Neurosis. Recently I've gotten very serious about bagpiping and am pleased as punch to play with The Gordons!
