South Molton is in the heart of North Devon, and records suggest that there has been a brass band there since 1910.
The band has been entertaining people all over the West Country and beyond for almost 100 years, performing concerts, taking part in carnivals and fetes, and charitable fund raising events, throughout the South West.
The band is entirely self supporting and its players travel from all over Devon to attend rehearsals and engagements.
Over the years the band has been very proud of its contesting achievements, and has taken part in many competitions. NationalWest of England area finals, SWBBA contest, Bugle Contest and Weston. Currently they are graded as a Second section band
following their recent 3rd place success at the SWBBA regional Finals inTorquay.
For many years the band has been conducted by a member of the Taylor family, and Gil Taylor is the current Musical Director. In the past it has been conducted by his Father, Grandfather and Great Uncle.
The diary is already filling up for engagements this year, and work is currently being done on a new website, where you will be able to keep up to date with what is happening.
