We are all doing our best to get by during the current lockdown but we know it’s difficult and realise a lot of our friends and fans will be missing their Brass Band Fix (The players and committee certainly are!! – and we will have something special soon to show you how we’re coping..).

In the meantime we are releasing our current crop of CDs for everybody to listen to FOR FREE on the website for as long as we are in lockdown. These are the FULL CD Tracks not just excerpts. Click on the CD you want to listen to and on the next page press Play on the first track (or use the player after the track list) and the CD will play in it’s entirety. (Give the 1st track a time to download – it just takes a few secs)
