OK so BRASS 2008 still has a week to run in Durham and what a week it is, yet 2009 is only a year away and Mnozil, Grimethorpe, and Reg Vardy are already booked but who would you like to see in 2009 Take a look at the website www.brassfestival.co.uk get an idea of the event and have a go at programming the Festival youself. Who is brave enough to try and come up with the best international programme? Everyone likes to knock the programming of events either too extreme or too traditional dare you put your choice in the lime light? It is not as easy as it looks I have been told!
