Foden's expands to include Publishing
Foden's Band has announced the launch of its in-house publishing company. Foden's Band Publishing will include regular writers from within the band such as John Barber, Jonathan Bates, Nick Birch, Iain McKnight and Ian Raisbeck, as well as former member Andrew Stevenson. Also joining the line-up are Dorian Kelly and Richard Haydn Taylor, prize-winners in the 2019 Foden's Band Composers Contest.
Band Manager Mark Wilkinson commented, “We believe this is a first for a brass band. Foden's has a long and proud history of bringing new music to banding audiences, but it is a significant move to begin to publish our own repertoire. This is an exciting step which will, we hope, enable other bands to enjoy performance repertoire with a special connection to Foden's.”
