    New signings at Newtongrange

    Newtongrange Silver Band is pleased to announce a number of new signings as it
    finalises its line-up for the forthcoming Scottish Championships.
    Last years First Section champions welcome Ray Collins (Bass Trombone),
    Charlotte Davey (1st Horn), Ian Davey (Euphonium), Donnie McMillan (B Flat
    Bass), Hannah Mitchell (Tutti Cornet), Lynda Scobie (Percussion) and Davie
    Thomson (B Flat Bass).
    Ray and Donnie, a former CWS Glasgow player, both join the band from Barrhead
    Burgh. Charlotte has made the short journey from Dalkeith & Monktonhall having
    previously appeared with Bo'ness & Carriden and Kingdom Brass. Ian's resume
    contains spells as Principal Euphonium with both Faireys and Fodens. Hannah's
    previous band was Bathgate and she is a former Freckleton player. Lynda last
    took the contest stage with the Crownhill British Legion Band, Plymouth and
    ex-Whitburn player Davie completes an all-new B Flat Bass section having joined
    from Broxburn & Livingston.
    Band Manager David Spence is “delighted with the quality of the new signings as
    it strengthens all sections of the band as it continues its preparations for
    its return to the Championship Section under the direction of Allan Ramsay.”
