The Best Day of the Year


UNISON Kinneil Band rounded off the 2015-2016 season by performing at this year’s Bo’ness Fair. Luckily we missed most of the rain and it was great to see all our friends out supporting the band and the children on the ‘Best Day of the Year’. As tradition dictates, the band announces our Player and Bandsperson of the Year Awards on the Fair ‘Een.

The Player of the Year Award goes to the player who has performed at the highest of standards not only on the contest stage but in the band hall over the course of the year. The award was chosen by the bands Musical Director, Craig Anderson, and the UNISON Kinneil Band Player of the year is Lauren Robb. Lauren is the band’s Principal Cornet player and has led his section with some outstanding solo and sectional performances throughout the year.

The Bandsperson of the year was set up to recognise the member of the band whose efforts outwith playing have benefited the band most. The award is voted for by the members of the band and this year’s winner is Billie-Jane Skene.

Thanks to all our supports, friends, players and committee members for a fantastic year – we look forward to seeing you all at our Brass in the Kirk Concert held in Bo’ness Old Kirk on Thuesday 18th August.
