“It is fantastic that we can get a player of Mike’s calibre to come and play with us here in Elgin” says MCB’s founder and Musical Director Glenn Munro. “The band is like one big family and former players from across Scotland and beyond are returning for the concert and to help us celebrate,” Mr Munro added. “There is going to be a great party atmosphere.”
Five concerts in five days
The band have just returned from a hugely successful tour to Oban that saw them perform 10 pop up concerts in five days. Venues included the Atlantis Leisure Centre, Etive Care Home, CalMac Ferry terminal, McCaig’s Tower and the Oban to Mull ferry during a crossing! At each gig the band helped raise funds and awareness for local charities based in Oban and such was the success of the tour they have now been invited to the Oban Winter Festival in November.
