HEXHAM BRASS AT HAYDON BRIDGE METHODIST CHURCH 10 March 2018

 

The band returned to the familiar venue of Haydon Bridge Methodist Church for its first concert of 2018. A varied programme of music ranged from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jurassic Park to the march '1914', in recognition of the World War One centenary this year. As always, we played to a welcoming and appreciative audience, making it the perfect setting for the first public performance of a march commissioned as a tribute to the band's founder, the late Sue Murrill.

 

Many thanks to all those who attended and to the church for the very generous and tasty supper!

HAPPY CAMPERS HAVE A RIGHT ROYAL DO! 19 May 2018

 

Hexham Brass turned out to Bellingham campsite in the glorious sunshine to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. As campers sipped on the their Champagne, the band entertained with a selection of tunes (vaguely) linked to the occasion: American classics such as Anything Goes and New York, New York; a Welsh connection with Men of Harlech and the Castell Coch march; and a nod to the establishment with Parliament Street Blues...

 

As parallels between the programme and the occasion became increasingly tenuous, it was probably fitting to end with the The Great Escape - leaving the happy campers to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Northumberland countryside!
