The Second Hand Marching Band is a band from a mix of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Ayr, Kincardine, Cumbernauld, Neilston, Canada, Airdrie and elsewhere who play a mixture of ramshackle instruments to create a euphoric post-folk sound.
Since they started playing in 2007 they can be found playing guitars, ukeleles, mandolins, triangles, accordians, trumpets, tenor horns, saxophones, trombones, glockenspiel, castanets, marching drums, melodicas, woodblocks, tamborines, bells, violins, flutes, clarinets and other stuff in various venues and open spaces around Scotland. Their sound has been described as "delightfully ramshackle" and the band as an "amazing Scottish juggernaut", this is music that really comes alive when it's played live as no two performances ever sound quite the same.
