On Saturday 11th June 2016 Irvine and Dreghorn Brass Band held their annual Slow Melody Contest, but with a bit of a twist. This year the senior contest was in our band hall – creating a more relaxed feel. We also held a little Grade 1 Challenge with a few of our members taking on a new instrument.
A huge thank you to Jill Carrick for adjudicating. Congratulations to everyone who took part and of course the prizewinners.
