Hall of Fame

Whitburn Band has a proud of history of individual and ensemble excellence. Here, we celebrate some of the players who have made Whitburn one of the leading brass groups in Scotland for the past 40 years. 

 

The Hall of Fame is populated by players and conductors who have won individual or sectional awards nationally, UK-wide or internationally, have won a Whitburn Band award, or have won at least five Scottish Brass Band Championships while with the band. This project is a work-in-progress, so if you would like to suggest an amendment or an addition please contact us.
