About Us


Officially formed in 2002, as the junior section of Mactaggart Scott Loanhead Band the Loanhead Brass Roots has welcomed more than 150 players. Many of these have stayed involved in the music world, whether it's playing with MacTaggart Scott Loanhead Brass Band or to study music at the highest level.

Brass banding provides many wonderful opportunities for  people. Throughout the years several of our young players are involved with the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland (NYBBS) which runs summer residential courses for young brass and percussion players from all over Scotland and beyond.
