Blewbury Brass Band can be heard at Blewfest this Saturday 9th September. Why not come along at 12:45pm to listen to the band and enjoy the atmosphere and great selection of beers? Let’s hope for a sunny day!
The band is delighted to support Blewfest. Last year, the organisation donated a considerable sum to our recent successful Youth Band tour of Germany. Thank you Blewfest!
BBB returned from their Summer break with a bang at Upton Village Fete. Lead by guest-conductor Richard Powell, the band performed some of their favourite pieces from this summer’s programme. We heard the lovely tenor horn solo ‘Demelza’ from Alice, were treated to ‘Moon river’ and ‘Solitaire’ from Bruce, and Grace performed an exciting rendition of ‘The Acrobat’.
We welcomed back past players Katherine and Martin, and were also joined by our friends Amanda, Megan and Katie. This afternoon’s performance was also the first time our percussionist, Michael joined the main band ensemble. He did an excellent job of keeping us in-line and in-time. Well done Michael!
Thank you to the organisers for providing the band with tea, coffee and cake in the interval.
We hope you enjoyed this afternoon as much as we did. See you again next year!
Come and hear the band at Upton Village Fete on Saturday 2nd September. Enjoy a traditional English fete including tea and cakes, lots of stalls and entertainment. Last year, the band was joined by a troop of Morris dancers for a memorable rendition of ‘Floral Dance’.
