Peebles is a thriving Scottish town with a range of music groups and venues. Here are some of the other ways you can join in.
One of our oldest music groups is the Peebles Burgh Silver Band. In fact it is one of the oldest brass bands in Scotland - and, as the town band, you'll see it leading the processions in the Beltane Festival. One of our youngest is Strumash - the Peebles ukulele orchestra. But Peebles is lucky to contain many talented musicians, some of whom you can hear playing regularly inPeebles Orchestra concerts and in numerous other ad hoc or more regular groups.
Central to many groups is the social enterprise Nomad Beat. Here a talented and enthusiastic group of tutors brings music to the community - whether you want to drum, learn guitar, fiddle, keyboards, violin or access many traditional styles of music, Nomad Beat can usually help. Founded through the effort and vision of the sadly missed Alison Cameron it helps many in the community enrich their lives through music.
