 One of our founder members of the band, Jimmy Horne passed away last week at the age of 97.  He was a great stalwart of the band, rarely missing an engagement and played until well into his 90s. He was very popular with young and old alike and one of the highlights for him was playing at Balmoral for the Queen.  Along with his wife Dolly they were a huge part of the community in Huntly and were always very supportive of local charities.  Jimmy's funeral is on Monday, 16th January and Huntly Band will be honoured to give him a good send-off befitting of a modest, extremely well-liked member.
