Welcome to the home page of the MacTaggart Scott Loanhead Brass Band, Loanhead Junior Band, and Loanhead Brass Roots.

The MacTaggart Scott Loanhead Brass Band dates back to as early as 1904. Based in Midlothian, in the south east of Scotland, we are part of a tradition of music making dating back to 1809 when the first civilian brass band was formed.
