Songs from the soundtrack of your life

There’s brass and silver in them there hills

This weekend I saw two live bands playing brass instruments. At the Burnley Canal Festival on Saturday there was the Burnley Silver Alliance Band.DSC00707

Then a day later at the Family Fun Day in Loveclough there was the Artistic Brass Band.

Brass bands have a strong tradition in Lancashire and other former industrial towns  (the Alliance Band was originally formed during the war as the Home Guard band) and we’ve had the pleasure of playing with one of the best, the Stacksteads Brass Band.

Truly the hills are still alive with the sound of music!
