BANDS IN THE PARK - CINDERFORD BRASS BAND

Whilst the Country Festival was taking place at one end of the riverbank on Sunday, at the other end, Cinderford Brass Band performed the sixth in the series of summer 'Bands in the Park' concerts, provided by Ross Town Council. Unfortunately, this is the first of this year's concerts I have been able to get to but I will try to get to more over the coming weeks.

Quite a large audience, spread around all four sides of the bandstand enjoyed the concert, on what turned out to be a sunny afternoon. As I left for home, one member of the audience, who had seen me filming asked if the video would be appearing on Wyenot News. Your question is answered below.

The piece chosen to show was recommended by a friend of mine from a previous work existence, Simon Whitson - who happened to be playing tuba with the band. It was great to see you again Simon after all these years! Simon recommended that I film 'Basin Street Blues', which was both arranged and performed by principal trombonist, Mike Innes. Great choice!

Simon: I tried to tell you about my brother, John Wood's band on Sunday but could not remember at the time which band he is currently with. Coincidentally, I saw him an hour later as he happened to be passing Ross and called by. He plays for Leyland Band and also conducts Lostock Hall. He is known by many local bandsmen as, when he lived locally, he used to play for Flowers, amongst others.
