    Barrhead Burgh Band is pleased to announce the appointment of Lynda Nicholson as Musical Director after her recent relocation to Glasgow.

    Lynda is a respected cornet player, having played for several top flight bands, including Foden’s, Desford and Black Dyke. More recently she has turned her hand to conducting and has been Music Director of Besses o’th’ Barn and Haydock Bands.

    She is well known throughout the UK for her work with youth, having been Music Director of the inaugural course of the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain, and M.D. of St. Helens Youth Band from 1988 to 2008, steering them to many concert and contest successes including six National Championship titles. Her experience in this area will greatly assist in developing the Band’s ties with Levern Valley Community Brass.

    The Band is currently undergoing a process of rebuilding and will welcome players in all sections.
