Airdrie x Bellshill ... a joint concert between two Salvation Army Bands
Last night I went to see/hear a joint concert from the Bellshill Salvation Army Band and the Airdrie Salvation Army Band. It was good fun at times... with Bandmaster Ian Dickie being his usual absurdist self (pictured above for a euphonium quartet based on "the Grandfather Clock").
Airdrie's Band under the leadership of Bobby Weir (pictured) sounded fab... and their choice of pieces was inspired.
All in... it was a good night... even with the fireworks which Ian roped me into helping him with. Believe it or not, that was the first time I had lit fireworks in my 37 years on this planet.
