Welcome to the official web site for Tayport Instrumental Band (TIB) – a Brass Band based in Tayport, North East Fife, Scotland. The Band was founded over 100 years ago, and still has a small core of enthusiastic amateurs who rehearse and perform together. As a group, we are part of the wider brass band band movement being members of both Fife Charities Band Association (FCBA) and the Scottish Brass Band Association (SBBA).
Actually, it’s not that long ago that we were actively contesting and doing well within our section, earning 2nd place in the 4th section of the Scottish Championships in 2014. Following that result, we went on to take part in the National Championships held in Cheltenham later that year.
Despite having lost a number of players since then, we still take on a significant number of engagements throughout the year both inside and outside our local community. You’d probably be surprised at the wide range of music which a little town band like TIB has to offer – from classics to the big band sound!
Whether you’re responsible for organising an outdoor summer fete, or in-house carol singing for your hotel during the Christmas season, TIB can provide what you need. Why not contact our band secretary by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any brass players coming to work or study in the area and looking for a band to become a part of, we are just over the bridge from Scotland’s “City of Discovery” – Dundee. So we are close to the universities of Dundee and Abertay, as well as Dundee College. The University of St. Andrews and Elmwood College all also within easy travelling distance of Tayport.
Details of rehearsal times and how to find us can be found on the Contacts page. You might also like to visit the Band’s group page on Facebook.
