    In an effort to show the new Besses o’th’ Barn Band are moving with the times and getting ‘hip and down with the kids’ the Band are pleased to announce that they now have a presence on the internet, not only with their own website ( but they now have a Myspace and Facebook page, both of which can be located via the Besses website.

    Speaking about the new Besses format, M.D. John North said “These are some of the many new initiatives to show that Besses today is near enough a totally new band, with totally new attitudes. Whilst we embrace our fantastic history we feel we have to move with the times and announce to the banding world that we are new, invigorated and very different from before. We are a friendly, welcoming band and now open the doors to anyone who wants to be a part of an amazing resurgence. If you want to play for the band, or help in an organisational capacity everyone is welcome to come down and see what they think. – You can even go on our website and buy a Besses Tee Shirt!”

    Hmm. I am old enough to remember the days when Besses showed they were 'moving with the times' by playing contemporary brass band music under the directorship of (amongst others) Ifor James, at a time when few others were treading that bold path. But good luck anyway, and here's to the hope that Besses might repeat their musical triumphs of the 1970s & 80's.
