Sponsored by Easingwold Town Band, with support from MUSIC FOR ALL
Easingwold Town Band plays at local events throughout the year — fêtes and garden parties, parades, village fairs, charity events, Christmas carol services, official occasions — with summer performances on the Bandstand in the Town’s Memorial Park. With our roots firmly in the British brass band tradition, our musical range is wide — from Tudor dances, through 18th – 20th century classics and military marches, to pop and jazz arrangements and contemporary film music.
Our players range from school-age to pensioners, and we offer a warm welcome to new players. We have vacancies for a solo cornet, a back-row cornet, and principal E-flat bass. Perhaps 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 even if you just feel ready for a change — come along for a blow!
REHEARSALS Town Band — Monday evenings, 7.45 to 9.30 p.m.
Training Band, for beginners, 6.30 to 8 p.m., alternate Fridays in termtime.
Easingwold is just off the A19, twelve miles north of York. Our Bandroom is close to Easingwold town centre, with adjacent parking.
