The Royal Burgh of Linlithgow Reed Band was formed in 1956. Linlithgow Reed Band is proud of their honoured position as the Burgh’s official band. The principal musical ensemble at the historic Riding of the Marches celebrations in June. Primarily, throughout its history, the Reed Band has been at the forefront of all local celebrations. Even more, we are one of the very few civilian bands in Scotland which has a military configuration, also in that it includes reed, brass and percussion instruments.
Above all, today the Linlithgow Reed Band has over 100 members over three ensembles – Beginners Band, Training Band and the main Reed Band.
