A fantastic weekend of brass band music supporting the Skibbereen Food Festival at the weekend. The Army Band was down from Cork on Saturday and played in the town market and then we played the Sunday to support the final day street festival. The weather held and the crowds were enjoying the music and food alike, there was even a surprise appearance from couple of puppets. Some pictures from the day.
We would like to sincerely acknowledge the financial contributions made by individuals, families, and friends of St.Fachtna's Silver Band. Without your support, it's maintenance would be impossible.
If you would like to contribute to, or join the band, please contact us

A fantastic weekend working with St Nicholas Band from Cork (http://www.stnicholasbrassband.ie/#/). They arrived on Friday for joint rehearsals in preparation for a concert with us for the Food Festival Belling awards in Baltimore on the Saturday. This was then followed with a joint hymn recital in Abbestrewry Church in Skibbereen on Sunday and after that we all continued to play further pieces from our programme for the parish attendees who were there on the day. A great time was had and we hope to do it again soon, some pictures from the day are below.
