Johnstone Band

Who we are

Johnstone Band was formed in 1834 by workers in the local textile mills in the area. It's one of the UK's oldest brass bands. Over the years, the band has grown in strength and regularly compete in many UK-wide contests. The band competes in the First Section.

The band was placed third in the First Section Scottish Brass Band Championships in Perth on 7th March 2020, just ahead of COVID-19 lockdown. Sadly, our calendar of events for 2020 is now suspended.

We are still getting together to make music, and you can catch our videos on social media
