Scottish Brass Band Champions 2014

The Co-operative Funeralcare Band are Scottish Brass Band Champions 2014. Conducted by Dr Nicholas J Childs the band produced an immense performance of Kenneth Downie's 'St Magnus' to regain the 'Scottish Champions' title previously won in 2012. This is the 32nd time the band has won the title, of which 13 have been in the last 20 years.

Adjudicator David Read's remarks summarised the performance as "Superbly directed - A performance that would stand up anywhere." 

Adjudicator Michael Dodds remarks stated "This was a fantastic performance full of music and great soloists."

In addition to winning the contest, all but one of the individual prizes were awarded to the band. Jimmy Hayes - Best Cornet. William Rushworth - Best Horn. Nigel Cox - Best Trombone. Ross Knight, Willie Young, Andy Smith, Alistair Boag - Best Bass section.

The band would like to thank Nicholas Childs for his superb preparation and direction of the band on an exceedingly difficult test piece. It was a great pleasure to work with him again.
