In November 2010, the Junior Band took part in the Youth Championships of the Scottish Brass Band Festival in Perth. Competing in the twenty-band strong Under 14 section, the band played early in the day and were on the bus on the way home when the results were finally announced. It was a delighted band who returned to Campbeltown as newly-crowned Scottish Youth Band Champions. The following review of our performance was taken from Brass Band World magazine: “…the splendid winner, Campbeltown Junior Brass…sounded strong, with musical soloists. The band’s youngest player, Erin McLellan, was celebrating her eighth birthday. The performance of Lead Kindly Light was beautifully blended and shaped – a touching performance that was a highlight of the whole day.”
