Au­tumn con­cert for church funds

The Galloway News - - WEEKEND TICKET -

The rafters of Car­sphairn Church will be ring­ing once again to the sound of brass when Du­naskin Doon Band re­turns on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28 to stage a con­cert in aid of church funds.

The band is back in the vil­lage af­ter a muchac­claimed per­for­mance last year. It will be the band’s fourth ap­pear­ance at the church in eight years.

Newly pro­moted to the first sec­tion, Du­naskin Doon com­peted against bands from across the UK in the sec­ond sec­tion at the Na­tional Brass Band Cham­pi­onships in Chel­tenham last Septem­ber and fin­ished in a cred­itable eighth po­si­tion – the high­est­placed Scot­tish band in all four con­test­ing sec­tions.

The con­cert will start at 7.30pm and light re­fresh­ments will be served dur­ing the in­ter­val. As last year, there will be no ad­mis­sion charge but do­na­tions at the door are re­quested. Last week’s win­ner was: Mrs Mag­gie Find­lay, Brae­side, Haugh of Urr.
