Hi
Im a cornet player who will be moving half way in between to North West / Midlands area in October due to a promotion at work
Ive played in the past between 3rd and 1st section Bands on front row up until 2018 but work took me to Isle Of Skye till now
What bands have any spots free on front row at all.
Asking in advance

I guess that you’ve been restricted in what playing you could do on Skye and so it might be wise for you to consider how good a player you are now and what arrangement might suite your long term aspirations best. There’s a map of Brass Bands on the web (google Brass Band results) that shows where nearly all the existing Bands are located and what section they are. IIRC there’s another one for empty chairs too.

It’s unlikely that anyone will pick up your interest from this (now virtually unused) website. Personally I’d visit a few Bands (listed on the map) to try to both gauge how I’d fit with them and to see what they see as their future.

Good luck.

To my mind the place tore itself apart via failure to tackle Trolling activities and allowing some particularly contentious topics to be discussed here. To be fair the Moderators didn’t, at that time, have the tools to successfully tackle the Trolls, they are volunteers, and their willingness to let contentious topics be discussed is admirable in theory but not that sensible in practice. Of course that’s my opinion and YMMV.

I don’t know where people drifted off to but there are some obvious social media platforms - none of which I use. This place has a massive archive of member supplied information available to those that care to search it, but unfortunately few active members.
