The Coalburn Band organisation has told 4BR of their delight after no less than six of its young players were involved in this year's National Youth Brass Band of Scotland (NYBBS) summer course.
Jack Archibald, Hannah Archibald, Anna Biggart, Euan Court, Finlay Damer and Tilly Trickey represented the Percussion Academy, Bronze, Intermediate and Silver Band ensembles, with Euan and Anna as section principals for the basses and trombones respectively.
Meanwhile, Finlay was part of the 'Best Section' (percussion) within the Children's Band and Euan was one of three young players automatically promoted to the Senior Band for 2018.
Band President Alan Court told 4BR: "We were thrilled at our uptake for this year's NYBBS course, and we are indebted to the Loaningdale Trust for their financial support.
We are delighted with the progress of our youngsters and look forward to supporting them further as they continue their musical education.''
