Supported by leading retailers Band Supplies, the workshop will be open to all players of all standards to attend and will be followed later the same evening when the stars will feature as guest soloists with Whitburn Band, conducted by Prof Nicholas J Childs.

This concert will be held at the SS John Cantius & Nicholas in Broxburn at 7.30pm, with tickets available on the door priced at £10/£8 concessions.

As well as the workshop and the concert, Katrina, who used to play with Whitburn, will make the Scottish launch of her new solo CD, 'Spotlight'.
