Hit­ting the high notes

West Lothian Courier - - Memory Lane -

There was a one-two for Bath­gate Band at the Scot­tish Ju­nior Solo Cham­pi­onship held at the Mews The­atre in Liv­ingston.

An­gela Whe­lan (on the right of our pic­ture) took the vic­tory with Gil­lian Pritchard com­ing home in sec­ond place, just a point be­hind.

Scot­tish Am­a­teur Brass Band As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Jim Ab­bot de­scribed the re­sult as tremen­dous and said he be­lieved that it was the first time that two play­ers from the same band fin­ished first and sec­ond in the event.

The band’s sec­re­tary Jim Comer­ford said:“It’s a re­sult which should en­cour­age the whole band to even greater things in the near fu­ture.”

Our story and pic­ture was fea­tured in the De­cem­ber 4, 1987 edi­tion of the Courier.
