For the first time since March, the band are now allowed to start playing together again. It will not be the same as before as we will be have to put in a lot of new measures to continue to keep our players and communities safe.
The band committee are working hard to get this organised, and will release more information once it is available.
The MacTaggart Scott Loanhead Brass Band takes the health and wellbeing of it’s players as a priority. As such, we have decided to suspend all band rehearsals and engagements until further notice due to the uncertainty over coronavirus.
We currently don’t know how long such a suspension might last, and so upcoming engagements will be under review on a reguloar basis. We will provide updates as decisions are made about individual engagements and new information is released by the relevant authorities.
We look forward to being back together in the bandhall soon.
Our recent result at the 2020 Scottish Championships was disappointing for many of our players. However the committee would like to put forward our thanks to all players for the dedication they have shown in preparing for this competition, and to our Musical Director – George Cameron – for bringing the piece to life.
We do not believe our 9th place finish was in keeping with our performance on the day. However the adjudicators felt differently, and we respect this decision.
The band continues to develop a rich sound, and we look forward to future engagements and competitions to show that this result does not define us as a band.
