Cahard Flute Band


In 1987 Cahard Flute Band was the first flute band to win an Irish Championship under the direction of a female conductor.

The Band is part of community life in the Saintfield area and beyond, where it plays regularly at concerts, church services, parades and more.

Playing at the Balfast Tattoo is not the first time that Cahard Flute Band has formed part of a massed flute band. In 1992, as part of its centenary celebrations, the Band invited players from other bands to form a massed band. This band, consisting of 130 flute players and 15 percussionists, created a memorable spectacle as it paraded through the village of Saintfield.
