Crieff Community Band

Crieff Community Band is a new venture by Nigel Gatherer, and sees the light of day in January 2011. The concept is that a bunch of amateur local musicians will start meeting and building up a repertoire of music with the intention, eventually, of performing at local events.

The emphasis will be on Scottish music, but we will add occasional pieces from further afield at times. All musicians are welcome, but you should have a basic grasp of your instrument. If you play bagpipes you should have another instrument as well - e.g. whistle - because not all of our pieces will fit on the bagpipe scale.

If you are inexperienced or a beginner, there will be tuition periods from 6-7pm before the main band meets (depending upon demand). You can be started on penny whistle, mandolin or guitar, with a view to joining the band at a later date (other instruments please get in touch to see what may be arranged).

The current term begins on Friday 21st January 2011 at St Andrews Church Hall, Strathearn Terrace, Crieff (view map) at 7pm. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or suggestions for tunes to learn.
