Phillip McCann is one of the best known names in the Brass Band world. He was Principal cornet with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain for five years and his long tenure of the same chair at Black Dyke was during the band’s world-beating period. His acclaimed series of Chandos CDs – The World’s Most Beautiful Melodies – is universally admired; the recordings are featured regularly on BBC Radio, Television and on Classic FM.  Phillip’s unique style and tone quality has been used by composers with orchestra for film and TV soundtracks such as Anna of the Five Towns, Woman of Substance and the immensely popular Hetty Wainthropp Investigates – the latter receiving an Ivor Novello Award in the category of Best Music commissioned for a Broadcast Production.

UNISON Kinneil Band have had an incredibly successful two years under the baton of Musical Director Craig Anderson having secured one Scottish Championship, one Fife Charities Championship, a top ten finish at the National Finals with the band this year securing a podium place at the Scottish Championships and a top ten placing at the Spring Festival Competition in Blackpool.
