Whitburn countdown to Lovatt lift-off

The Scottish Open Champion gives a little taste of what to expect from Mike Lovatt when they team up for their virtual 150th celebration concert this weekend.

  Mike Lovatt is the special guest star for the virtual concert

The Whitburn Band is certainly looking forward to its special 'virtual' 150th anniversary celebration concert with special gust Mike Lovatt this weekend.

Through the clever multi-media work of band member Ryan Bradley, the players have each recorded their parts to eight pieces of music — including two with Mike for the broadcast which can be enjoyed on their YouTube channel.

Raise Foodbank funds

The event will also help raise money for the West Lothian Foodbank, who are providing much needed help to the people of Whitburn and beyond during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The concert can be enjoyed on the band's YouTube channel at 7.30pm on Saturday 27th June, and to give you a little taste of what you can enjoy they have just released a cracking 'teaser' promotion…
