News from Tintwistle Band





Things are still definitely looking up!  


 After 20 months we have finally played an indoor concert, courtesy of the good folks at Boarshurst Bandroom. Sunday 31 October was definitely a wet night so the audience was a little less than normal but they seemed to enjoy our offerings.

MD, Andrew Mallon put on a varied concert programme, including his favourite Three Brass Cats; Mr Jums, Black Sam, Borage and Kracken; (yes their is actually four) and the obligatory Scottish melody, this time it was the haunting Ashokan Farewell, which incidentally was written by an American in the style of a Scottish Lament.  Gary Lloyd's solo of Rule Britannia was described by the Boarshurst compere as making him "the king of the valves" - I think that will stay with him for a while!!!!

So, it's on to Glossop Bonfire, on Saturday 6 November, after which we will be forced to look at the "dreaded" Christmas music 😱😳😀

Happy banding.
