Dalkeith and Monktonhall Brass Band has won a major honour at a national contest.
Competing in the Scottish Brass Band Championships at Glenrothes recently, the band – led by Musical Director Jim Chamberlain – took second place in the first section competition.
Following the win, the band will represent Scotland at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, to be held in Cheltenham in September.
The success also attracts a promotion to the Championship Section, with the band now forming part of the top 10 bands in Scotland and the top 100 in the UK.
