Jedforest Instrumental Band members are looking forward to competing in the British Brass Band Championships at Cheltenham in September after winning the Scottish title in Perth Concert Hall.

They were up against 12 other bands in the second section at Perth where principal cornet David Sutherland was also declared best instrumentalist.

Under professional conductor Phil Rosier, the band has been rehearsing steadily for the past few months, sometimes devoting an entire weekend to mastering the modern test piece, “Variations on Maccabeus”, based on an original theme by G. F. Handel.
