Wilfred Gibson (born 28 February 1945, Dilston, Northumberland, England) is an English violinist who played in the band Electric Light Orchestra, and has performed as a session musician. He replaced original ELO violinist Steve Woolam in 1972 and performed in their first live concert. He later made contributions to the ELO II album and performed on the hit singles "Showdown" and "Ma-Ma-Ma Belle" playing alongside cellists Colin Walker and Mike Edwards. He was replaced in 1973 by Mik Kaminski allegedly due to a payment dispute. His work as a session musician has seen Gibson playing on numerous hits throughout the years, sometimes uncredited.

In 1989 he was the violinist in the BBC Radio 3 musical drama "Notes from Janàcek's Diary".

He also contributed to the Hothouse Flowers album "Home" (1990), and to The Beloved's "Happiness" (1995) as well as appearing on the Oasis hit "Whatever".

He was one of the ten members of Alan Gout's Berkeley Square Society Band, which plays 1920s and 1930s music, and released an album "Gershwin In London Town" on the Zah Zah record label in 1998.

In 1999 he played on the musical soundtrack for the film, "The Last September".
