Capital Concert Band


The Capital Concert Band is a community wind band based in Edinburgh which performs several concerts a year in support of various charities. We are a sociable group of amateur musicians who believe music and fun go together. Our members are not only from Edinburgh, but also from as far afield as Fife, Perthshire, and the Scottish Borders. It is a members' band, managed by an elected committee, an Equal Opportunities organisation and a registered charity (No SC035673).


The Band


Director of Music

Kevin Lamb
We are privileged to have as our Musical Director, Kevin Lamb, a distinguished musician who has numerous recordings and broadcasts to his credit as a composer, arranger, producer and conductor of both Wind Bands and Brass Bands. His professional career as a musician in the British Army has included posts as Bandmaster of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders; Director of Music of The REME Band; and Head of School and Chief Instructor of the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall. Kevin has presented masterclasses and lectured on Music Education, Conducting and Arranging at universities and colleges throughout the UK and abroad.

Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 during school term times in St Andrew"s Leith Church at the foot of Easter Road and accompanied by much laughter.

It is not unknown for members of the band to make their way to a nearby pub for post-rehearsal discussion.... and more laughter.




We play several concerts each year and support a variety of charities. In addition to full band performances, we provide ensemble groups for other occasions.

Our principal venue is St Andrew's Chuch Leth. We have also performed in Inverleith St Serfs Church, St Giles Cathedral, Princes Street Gardens (Ross Bandstand), Trafalgar Lodge, Leith, the Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh, the Théatre de Verdun, France; and Gibraltar Cathedral.
