The Golowan Band is recruiting! New members are needed and will be made most welcome! We are looking for brass/woodwind/fiddle players – and the like who are fit enough to march and play and enjoy the fun and cameraderie of being part of this famous band. There is a core repertoire of ten tunes which you will need to learn and rehearsals will be held down at the Barbican every Tuesday for six weeks from 8th May to 12th June at 7.30 p.m. culminating in all the joy and festivities of Mazey Weekend. Obviously the Golowan Festival is our focal point but the band also participates in other vibrant Cornish events such as Lafrowda and Goldsithney Charter Fair. If you are interested and able to join our happy crew please contact Alan Collins on 07484878174. We look forward to hearing from you!
