New Musical Director
We are delighted to announce that Steven Craig has been appointed as the new Musical Director of Renfrew Burgh Band.
Steven Craig started his brass banding career with the Tullis Russell Mills Band as a youth, making his contest debut in the Championship section. He also had a very successful playing career with the Cowdenbeath Public Band (now merged with Kelty to form Kingdom Brass) before moving back to the Tullis Russell Band organisation. Steven was fortunate to join the CWS Glasgow Band and played in the National Championship winning band of 1990 in the Albert Hall, as well as organising and taking part in the band’s historic 3-week tour of Australia and New Zealand
He has been very fortunate to have played under some of the world’s leading brass band conductors, and much of his style, determination and commitment to do the best he can with bands comes from these talented people.
Steven also helped form the Tullis Russell Intermediate Band and lead them to many contest successes before moving on with his conducting career. He is the current Musical Director of the Buckhaven and Methil Miners Band but is also looking forward to the new challenges that being appointed Musical Director of the Renfrew Burgh Band will bring.
We look forward to working under his direction as we start to prepare for the Scottish Championships and beyond.
