After over 30 years in front of the Band, Willie Barron is resting his baton and has taken the vacant BBb chair. In his place; George and Ed are sharing the conducting duties which is working well whilst Janet has stepped up to replace George as Principal Solo Cornet. Willie says that he would like to have a shot at conducting the Band if all of the chairs are ever filled and we came close to that on 12 February with only one EEb Bass chair vacant.

Gordon McWilliam and Archie Paton of Lodge St James 713 presented a cheque for £150 to George Brown, Co-Conductor of Keith and District Silver Band at our recent Sunday night rehearsal. The donation recognises the Band’s contribution to the local community and especially the charity work which forms a large part of its engagement schedule. Willie Barron, long time conductor and now BBb bass player commented “ this generous donation will allow us to buy four pieces of music to expand our repertoire and entertain the various types of audience that we appear in front of during a typical year”. Keith and District Silver Band is, itself, a charitable organisation with all players giving freely of their time to play together, entertain and raise  money for various local charities. Their repertoire stretches from pop to classics, shows and film music as well as brass band classics. Players of any standard are always welcome at the regular Sunday night rehearsal from 6.30 to 8.30pm in the Longmore Hall, Keith.
