SBBA announce revised Learning Roadshow

The Scottish Brass Band Association has announced a new date for their on-line Learning Roadshow.

SBBA
  The initiative will now be held on-line on Sunday 20th September

Preparations for two Scottish Brass Band Association learning events to celebrate the organisation's 125th anniversary year are back on track after being temporarily derailed by the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown.

Learning Roadshow

The Learning Roadshows had originally been planned for the east and west of Scotland during June and September with the intention of reaching out to brass band musicians with useful workshop and information sessions.

Now the two revised events are being combined into a single, online experience which will be beamed into people's homes on Sunday 20th September.

Single event

SBBA Education Officer John Boax told 4BR: "Unfortunately the ongoing developments with Covid-19 meant our original initiative could not go ahead as planned, so with support from Creative Scotland we are now putting together a different, single event at a later date."

Further participants will be announced in due course.
