Well, here goes - a self-introduction from an old bloke who plays trombone (for my own enjoyment - not sure about anyone else's!) Despite my site"name", I have nothing to do with Scotland. The name comes from a trombone solo played by Crystal Palace Band on Bank Holiday Monday, 1938 I think it was. Not that I was there, but my parents did much of their courting there, and I recently found the programme for the events of the day, and the piece caught my imgination. The programme in question now resides in the archive of Crystal Palace band, and can be seen on their website archive section. After a bit of research on the 'net, I found the music for the solo in the library of Lympstone SWT band, and, with the help of Bryony Snell, they were kind enough to allow me to purchase it from them. Not played it yet, but will have a go as and when time allows! Although I now live in Verwood, I do not play with the fast improving Verwood Concert Brass - far too good for me - I will leave all the clever stuff to my son (euph) and duaghter in law (cornet). Quite happy to help out with the training band, which my son conducts, and play also with the Ringwood and Burley Band, who have made me feel very welcome since joining them a couple of months ago. As a tMP newbie, I am looking forward to exchanging views, information and hopefully a few laughs with fellow banders. Thanks for reading this far!
