Whitburn Band won the Fife Brass Band Festival contest, held at Dunfermline’s Carnegie Hall last Saturday.

The band, conducted by Bryan Allen, topped the field of 11 bands from all over Scotland.

Whitburn performed Amazonia from Peter Graham’s Windows of the World, Hope by Stijn Aertgeerts, Ukrainian Dances by Stephen Roberts and Nightingale Dances by Matthew Hall.

The victory in Fife follows the band’s wins at the Scottish Open contest last November and the Scottish Championships in March, with both of those events held at the Perth Concert Hall.

Charlie Farren, Whitburn Band President, commented: “We were very pleased to have won the Fife Brass Band Festival contest.

“Congratulations to our conductor Bryan Allen, and to all of the prizewinners, and thank you to the event organisers.


“The band is now looking forward to competing at the Grand Shield Contest in Blackpool in May.“
