Welcome to the Home Page of Peebles Burgh Silver Band – Registered Charity No SC042447
The Band was established in 1834 and currently sits in the Fourth Section of the Scottish Brass Band Association Championships. We perform regularly throughout the year playing on the march at local engagements, indoor and outdoor concerts and in competitions.
We rehearse twice weekly in our Band Hall in the middle of Peebles High Street under our Musical Director, Peter Holmes – Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7.15 pm to 9.15 pm.
Peebles Burgh Youth Band, for our learners of all ages, also rehearses on a Tuesday evening – 6.00 pm until 7.00 pm under the baton of David Robb. Rehearsals are also available on Friday afternoons with David Robb – 3.30 pm to 5.00 pm. One to one tuition is also available for absolute beginners until they progress into the Youth Band proper.
We provide instruments, music tuition and the opportunity to play within a group under the baton of a professional conductor, all free of charge. Should you wish to come along and just listen in or to join the Band – no matter your age or ability, please email the Band Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be made most welcome.
Unfortunately all Band activity is stopped at the moment (March 2020) due to the Coronavirus Pandemic – rehearsals will recommence as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so.
