As we near the close of another year, (where has it gone?!) what have been your banding highlights this year? Mine have been: 1. Whit Friday with "Tartan Brass", playing in Delph around midnight after Brighouse and the Delph Band, the atmosphere was just awesome!! The dress sense of us wearing kilts seemed to go down quite well too!! 2. Black Dyke concert in Perth, I organised a bus trip for about 30 of our young members to listen to their concert. Managing to get us all sitting in the front 2 rows and then seeing the thrill and amazement on their young faces as they played was great, certainly something for them all to aspire to. And with a few of us growing up with Morvern, it was a proud moment to see her playing for Dyke too! 3. The British Open, 1st time there watching, had a great time listening to the bands and meeting new folk, also Morvern invited me to Black Dyke's rehearsal on the Sunday!! 4. Virtuosi Concert in Rainford, the day after Whit friday, fantastic concert to play in. 5. YABB in Luxembourg, at Easter, what more can I say!!! Roll on 2007!
