…there’s nothing like it!
We always look forward to the Butlin’s Mineworkers Brass Band Festival and this year did not disappoint.
Good friends as well as fantastic brass bands made the weekend one to remember. The highlights were watching the bands compete, and we’d like to say a huge well done to everyone who took part from 4th section to Championship.
The Baritone section of CBBB were particularly delighted to see their comrades featured in the Championship test piece and a jazz baritone solo in the Louis Dowdeswell Big Band. An underrated instrument and obviously the best section in any brass band (…writes the baritone player).
Delicious home-cooked meals, amusement arcades and the beach in winter rounded off the music-filled weekend.
For the last 3 years we’ve been attending the festival socially, not competing but to spend time together. We look forward to 2021, maybe you’ll be joining us?
