The Kirkintilloch Band recently marked the incredible 70 years of service provided by Band President and SBBA Honorary Vice-President, Peter Fraser MBE.
During his 70 years of dedication Peter has served as a player, manager and administrator, and so much more, as well as having leading roles with SBBA and the European Brass Band Association.
Band Manager, John Needham told 4BR: "Peter is the very definition of the word 'stalwart'; with an incredible, unmatched loyalty and dedication to the band he loves.
We owe our very existence to Peter. His selfless work over the years has sustained the band through good times and bad. He is a living legend, and I'm sure I speak for everyone past and present as well as the wider banding community in paying tribute to him."
