Arbroath Instrumental president takes to TV after player appeal success

Thursday 20 January 2022

Like numerous bands throughout Scotland, Arbroath Instrumental has been working hard to bolster its ranks in preparation for the Scottish Championships in March.

At 129 years old, the 3rd Section band is one of Angus's oldest surviving instrumental groups. The success of its appeal for new players, launched last year, is said to have rescued the outfit from the brink of extinction.
