Fantastic morning at the Kintyre Agricultural show. Thank you all the players for putting on a great performance.

Leavers Concert

Tuesday 27th August 2019

Dunaverty Village Hall, Southend


It was a full house! Thank you, everyone, for coming to our Leavers Concert and supporting the band. The evening was both joyous and emotional, as 5 of our band members said their farewell by giving us a moving rendition of My Way. The Senior Band kicked off the concert by showcasing their programme for Troon, followed by some capable playing by our new beginners who only started a few weeks ago. Finally performances by an ever-increasing Junior Band! We wish to thank the Dunaverty Village Hall Committee for all their help and support. The evening raised over £500 for the band, which would not have been possible without such a supportive audience.


The West of Scotland Entertainment Contest

Saturday 31st August 2019, Troon


It was another epic journey this time to Troon and back! Despite the rough early morning crossing on the ferry, with half the band suffering from seasickness, it was straight off the ferry and on to the stage. The band produced an excellent performance especially our Principal horn Amy Paterson. Not only did the band win the Best First Section but they also came second overall.


It's the end of an era for Hannah Oman, Suen Yee Walker, Rebecca Semple and Amy Paterson! Having been in the band for over a decade, they will soon be leaving us to further their studies. We also said farewell to Ali Cupples, who is heading down South to continue his studies. We wish them all the best for the future.

Christmas Concert

18th December 2019


Thank you everyone for coming along and supporting the band. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  


Merry Christmas! 

Thank you to all band members who have given up their time in this busy period to bring some festive cheer! Thanks to Tesco and Co-op for allowing us to use their premises. On behalf of Campbeltown Brass, thank you, everyone, for all your support throughout the year. To all band members: thank you for all your hard work and helping to make the band what it is.


We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the staff at TSB Campbeltown – Andrew, Grace, Jenny and Louise for their fundraising efforts throughout the year. As part of the TSB Local Charity Partnerships programme, Campbeltown Brass was nominated and chosen by the public as their local cause. From bake sales to hampers, the staff managed to raise £594.39 for the Band! We wish to thank customers of TSB for their generosity and the staff for all their hard work. It is amazing how this small community, without fail, always support us and many other charities in town.


Finally, a group of band members volunteered to play carols for the staff and patients at Campbeltown Hospital this morning. It is always nice to remember that there are those who have to spend their Christmas in hospital and there are lots of nurses, doctors, hospital staff and emergency service staff who will be spending the day looking after others.


Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
