Lydbrook developing banding in Poland
Following the band’s appearance at the British Open Spring Festival in Blackpool last weekend, the Lydbrook Band have set off on a tour to the Polish city of Katowice. The band will give four concerts as well as masterclasses by players, conductor Tom Brevik and composer-in-residence, Liz Lane. The main festival concert will take place on Sunday 26th May where Lydbrook will perform as part of the 'Move Your Brass' festival weekend.
It is hoped that this tour will also help with the development of a fledgling brass banding movement. A spokesperson for the band stated, "Lydbrook will be the first brass band to visit the Katowice area and we will endeavour to be proud ambassadors for the UK brass band movement."
