I will be over in Edinburgh at the end of this month (Mon 26-Thurs 29 July) to be specific, and am wondering if there are any brass band concerts in the area worth going to. I always feel that a trip to the UK is half wasted if we don't get to see a brass band concert, in the home country. Like when I was in London last year, not sight nor sound of any concerts anywhere in the London area. Came home a little disappointed. I don't think I'd have the guts to attend a rehearsal of a local band for fear of them being too good!!!
