After capturing the hearts of the nation with a series of incredible concerts last year, Scotland’s best-known military band is teaming up once again with leading Armed Forces charity Poppyscotland for a mini-tour in 2019.
The Band of The Royal Regiment of Scotland will perform in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Galashiels later in the year.
The Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland is one of the 22 Regular Army bands and is based at Dreghorn Barracks, Edinburgh. It is a symphonic wind band with the additional capability of a ceilidh band. The main role of the band is to support the Army, the State and Ceremonial occasions that occur within Scotland.
The 2018 tour – along with an accompanying CD – helped to raise thousands of pounds for Poppyscotland and it is hoped that more will be raised this year to support the country’s Armed Forces community.
The Band will return to the Beach Ballroom, in Aberdeen, on November 22nd. New for this year – and included thanks to calls from multiple music lovers – will be the unmistakable and haunting sound of Scottish bagpipes.
Experience the unmistakable and memorable sound of Scotland’s state band.
Behind them. Always.
