Whitburn a Cutt above for Nationals

Friday 20 March, 2020

Garry Cutt is to conduct Whitburn Band at the 2020 National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.

The announcement sees the renewing of a partnership between the renowned conductor and the Scottish Open champion which led to a third place at the Royal Albert Hall in London last year.

Charlie Farren, Whitburn Band chairman, said: “Garry made a terrific impact at Whitburn last year. The band performed very well and achieved a good result, so everyone at Whitburn is very excited to be working with Garry once more.”

Garry added: “I'm delighted to be working with Whitburn again. 

“Our third place at last year's Nationals was just reward for the hard work and a collective team ethic that exists in the bandroom.”
