We’re a standard brass band, a part of the community life of Easingwold and its neighbourhood, and a registered Charity (No. 1101841). Founded in 1901, we play at local events throughout the year — fêtes and garden parties, parades, village fairs, charity events, Christmas functions and official occasions — with summer performances on the bandstand in Easingwold’s Memorial Park.
Our BRIAN BOUSFIELD BRASS WORKSHOP for young (and not-so-young) brass players took place on SATURDAY 9 FEBRUARY 2019 at the Galtres Centre in Easingwold. 27 brass players, from school-age to pensioners, with playing experience ranging from a few weeks to several years, were tutored by Richard Wilton (Musical Director of Shepherd Group Brass Band, York) and his colleague Mike Pratt. They were encouraged to tackle some challenging music while being shown how to develop and improve their playing, finally surprising themselves by the quality of their performance a short ‘concert’ at the end of the Workshop. A successful event — and fun, too, for all who took part. Mr Brian Bousfield’s generous donation made the event possible.
We’ll be giving our ANNUAL CONCERT at the Galtres Centre, Easingwold on Saturday 23 March 2019, 7.30 p.m. See NEWS PAGE for more details.
We currently have VACANCIES for solo and back-row cornets. We’re registered in the 4th Section, with a view to entering an occasional contest.
We offer a warm welcome to new players. If you’ve recently moved into the area, or you’d like to get back into brass banding after a break, or maybe you’re a student at one of York’s universities or colleges; or if you just feel ready for a change — come along for a blow!
