Larry celebrates 50 years of brass playing – and all with the same band!

Tuesday 7 December 2021

Dalkeith and Monktonhall’s front row cornet player Larry Blair has received a long service award from the Scottish Brass Band Association.

Larry, who celebrates 50 years of brass banding, has spent the whole of this time with the same band.

He was presented with his SBBA long service medal by band chairman and life-long best friend Jim Henderson in front of a sizeable audience at Dalkeith and Monktonhall’s first public concert in almost two years, in St Mary’s Church, Haddington, East Lothian.
