Everyone in Howick had warned us about the drive over the mountains to Moffat. On top of this, we had winds of up to 40 miles an hour.
The drive was incredible, it turns out. We had the most amazing views of the mountains and a few Lochs.
It took us about an hour to get over to Moffat. We went to a local bakery and had Scotch pies and soup before meeting our hosts for that evening.
Katherine and Mike were fantastic hosts, we even managed to persuade Mike to come to the concert!
Katherine was the president of the Moffat Music Club and showed us to the Old Well Theatre.
This was a beautiful old church, converted into a theatre with a capacity of 70.
After a hearty italian meal in ‘Claudio’s’, we headed up to the church and performed to a full audience. We had an amazing response from the audience once again. So many people were delighted to experience the trombone in a completely different setting to what they usually do.
After the concert, we visited the local pub for some light refreshments.
