SBBA is grateful to fellow brass musicians Iona McVicar and Laura Carter, both of whom are members of the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland (NYBBS), for their sterling work in planning and organising this Youth Speaks Roadshow.

Commented Iona: “It is incredibly important to give young brass players a space to talk about what is important to them, especially for serious topics such as mental health and diversity.

“It has been a great opportunity to explore such subjects, as well as more light-hearted ones, and a fantastic experience to learn about these and other things from our peers.”
