Listen to a chat with Ian Porthouse on latest SBBA Speaks podcast

Tuesday 11 January 2022

If you missed it over Christmas, here is the second SBBA Speaks podcast by Scottish brass banders Iona McVicar and Laura Carter which features a seasonal interview with Ian Porthouse, musical director of the NYBBS senior band and one of the UK’s leading conductors, educators, performers and teachers.

The podcast has been devised as a space for the Scottish brass banding community – and especially the younger members – to keep up to date with news and discuss topics that are important to them.

The inaugural episode, which aired on 4 December, centred on a ‘vox pop’ from the Scottish Festival of Brass. You can catch up with the latest podcast here. The next episode is due to be aired on 29 January and monthly thereafter.

If you would like to let Iona and Laura have any ideas for future broadcasts, you can contact them via email at or on Instagram @sbbaspeakspodcast
