Kirkby Stephen Silver Band is a small but enthusiastic band based in the beautiful hills of the Eden valley. Our concert programme is full and varied, playing everywhere from schools to motorway services and even the occasional band stand!
Our repertoire is varied too, and we like to think we can turn our hand to some modern works as well as the old favourites in ‘Silver Band’ songbook.
Some of our performances are on YOUTUBE. These videos give some idea of the variety of music that we play and the kind of events we play at.
Here at the Kirkby Stephen Silver Band, we believe in making good music and having fun, and believe in the power of music to move people and make a positive contribution to the community.
Have a look at our FACEBOOK page to see what Kirkby Stephen Silver Band are doing at the moment.
Our members are of all ages and all walks of life. Some have played for many years, some have played a non-brass instrument and some have never played at all. It doesn’t matter. You don’t need to have your own instrument, We will provide one and you can choose whether you would like play with the cornets, the horns, the trombones or the basses depending on your own preference and possibly personality!
We provide all music, instrument insurance and cleaning equipment. We also provide uniform suitable for our very variable weather conditions.
Do you think you might like to have a go? Just come along on a Monday evening at 7.30 pm and make up your mind. We also have extra practice and tuition sessions on every second Thursday evening where newer players can meet in a small group to get comfortable with the basics of playing.
Also, if you’re a visitor or an experienced player who’s new to the area, get in touch and maybe come for a few practice sessions.
Details of Kirkby Stephen Silver Band’s public performances and any extra rehearsals are listed on our EVENTS page. You’d be welcome at any of them, particularly if you’ve got the metalwork and puff to join our happy band.
Apart from a small annual membership fee we are self-supporting. One way we raise extra funds, apart from performances and donations is through the Kirkby Stephen Silver Band SILVER LOTTO Look here to see about joining the Lotto and to see if you have won the bi-monthly draw.
