Crieff Community Music
Crieff Community Band
Location St Andrews Halls
Day/Time Friday, 7-9pm
Latest update 24 Feb '24 11am

Crieff Community Band is a group of amateur local musicians who meet and build up a repertoire of music with the intention, eventually, of performing in the local community.

The emphasis is on Scottish music, but we will add occasional pieces from further afield at times. All musicians are welcome, but you should have a basic grasp of your instrument. If you play smallpipes you should have another instrument as well - e.g. whistle - because not all of our pieces will fit on the bagpipe scale.

Music

The music that we play is arranged in a number of sets each consisting of ten pages of tunes. The tunes we're going to practise each week are given in the schedule below. To access individual tunes or multiple sets, visit the CCB Sets page.
