Musical Director

Simon Railton


I started learning cornet age 10 at Langholm Town Band. Over the years I’ve played for Annan, Selkirk, and Newtongrange. In 2016 I joined the front row at Whitburn. I have played at the Nationals 5 times, won the Scottish 3 times, won the Grand Shield and the Scottish Open once each and have been fortunate enough to play at Symphony Hall and the Albert Hall.

I’m delighted to be taking over as Musical Director at Newland Concert Brass and seeing what we can achieve together.
