Campbeltown Brass returned triumphantly from the Scottish Youth Brass Band Championships over the weekend, with not one but TWO winning Gold Awards! The event was held at the prestigious Perth Concert Hall where youth bands from all over Scotland competed for the coveted title of Scottish Youth Champions. This year Campbeltown Brass competed in two categories: The Preparatory Section for players 12 and under and the Novice Section for players 14 and under. Both bands consisted of pupils from the Grammar School, local and surrounding primary schools. With many players competing for the first time, it was an amazing achievement for such a young band, both in age and playing experience. All their hard work paid off when it was announced they were Champions in both their respective Sections. Well done everyone!

Campbeltown, family and friends should be extremely proud of what all these youngsters have achieved. They have put in a huge amount of work, many hours of practice and a lot of commitment and dedication to their craft. We also wish to praise the parents for encouraging their children and taking them to band rehearsals week-in-week-out! Finally, our sincere thanks to both Gordon Evans and Katrina Barr for developing and nurturing these youngsters to two fantastic gold winning performances!
