The Haven

We are very proud to learn that the music composed by East Haven resident Gregor Beattie for our octocentenary in 2014 has recently been showcased by the wind band of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. This week, 'The Haven' will be played in St John's Smith square London for the Philip Jones Brass Spectacular concert. Some of you will recall that 'The Haven' was played for the first time by Carnoustie and Arbroath Instrumental band at the East Haven Maritime and Heritage event in 2014. Gregor also wrote Lyrics to the music which are sung by Katie Barnett on side two of the CD. The music provides a lasting legacy to our 800th celebrations and we are all very proud of Gregor's achievements as a composer and musician. If anybody would like to purchase a CD we still have a few left at a cost of £3.
