Midlothian’s oldest continuously running Brass Band , Penicuik Silver Band ( est1835) have gained promotion to  the 3rd section of the Scottish Brass Band  Association national league  after  the Scottish  national championships held in Perth Royal Concert Hall in March this year . The new  averaging system has meant a short  but  anxious wait to confirm that  the band has had the most consistent results of  competing bands in the fourth section over  the past two years. This was confirmed by the SBBA national committee last week , allowing band members to put away their calculators and start to celebrate after a 33 year waitRead More →

Yesterday the band contested up in Perth at the Band Supplied challenge cup.  The band came in a respectable 13th of 19 bands.  Although we missed out on the top prize in the 4th section we are delighted with how we performed and the result we got! We could not have managed this without the skills, talent and hard work given by our Guest conductor Iain Fleming over the last couple of months.   The biggest thanks go to him and his family for finding the time to allow us to do this!!  Read More →
