Legends of the Brass Band World

Today our talk was entitled “Legends of the Brass Band World” by Chris Helme. Chris currently hosts a program dedicated to Brass band music on PhoenixFM community radio.He has been involved with the brass-band world for more than fifty years, and his talk today draws upon that experience to present a fascinating insight into some of the foremost figures in both their own banding area and the national scene. With slides and narrative about the bandsmen and women themselves, as well as their families, friends and banding colleagues, he celebrates their triumph and sadness, local life and band life, community success and even national recognition. The presentation brought back many happy memories for the members attending. A detailed record of life in the mill towns as it once was, and a triumphant celebration of a community that lives on into the twenty-first century.
