'Formed in October 1991 as a result of the amalgamation of the Alva Town and Alloa Burgh bands. Both bands were short of players and close to extinction until talks between their respective committees resulted in their merger. During its short history the band has had a remarkable contesting success, representing Scotland at the National Championships on no fewer than 3 occasions ... The band are available for concert work and gala days or can provide small groups for fanfares, church services or weddings ... We also have an Ensemble which meets once a week ... The Ensemble will be of particular interest to anyone wishing to learn a brass instrument. The Ensemble has its own concert schedule and will occasionally co-host events with the Senior Band. All are welcome.’

The decline of the mining industry in what was once a thriving mining community has meant that the Band required to become self sufficient in its funding and latterly find itself a new identity.‘

‘We are Hillfoot Harmony Chorus, a group of female A Capella singers based in Dollar, near Stirling in central Scotland. We strive for musical excellence in the performance of barbershop singing. We are also great friends and laugh with each other. We are a member of Sweet Adelines International, a global musical organisation that supports us in perfecting the art of four-part barbershop singing. We sing in the local and surrounding communities, at charity events, and to support local groups. Our ages range from mums with young children up to ladies with grandchildren, with many diverse jobs and some retirees. “These are the friends I always wanted and the sisters I never had“.’
