A Community Swing Band for the Highlands
Inverness's "Highland Swing" was formed in the Summer of 2004 by enthusiasts of swing and jazz music. Since that time we have established a very strong presence in the local community and, despite going through numerous personnel changes, have gone from strength to strength. We are now a regular feature at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.
The pandemic led us to explore new ways of making music together and we made a series of virtual ideo performances. We were brave enough to enter our efforts into the Inverness Music Festival and we came out category winners in 2021 and runners up in 2022.
The band's players' ages, like their experience, cover a wide range. But then experience is not the most important criterion we look for in a band member. No, we would prefer enthusiasm. But the knowledge of which way up to hold your instrument helps too!
If you think you might be interested in joining us, why not come along to our rehearsal one night. We meet on Tuesday nights at 7pm in the Corbett Centre, Coronation Park in Inverness most weeks of the year. See you soon.
We are currently looking for a guitarist. We also have room for another trumpet and a trombone. If you are interested, or know anyone who might be interested, please do get in touch with us. We are a very laid back affair.
