    Hi Mick,

    I've edited the above to include details about YBS. Though you were mentioned in the seperate news item about the Manchester gig, here: http://www.themouthpiece.com/vb/showthread.php?t=16999

    Looks like being a cracking evening. I was at the concert YBS & Canadian Brass put on for my brother, Eilir, at Salford, 6 years ago this month, and it was a night I'll never forget, and neither will Eilir. Am gutted to have a conference on with work at the time of this concert this year.

    All the best,

    Dylan.

    I don't understand this...I've seen CB four times over the past 25 years, and whatever they are, they are most definitely not a brass band. So how they shatter preconceptions about something they're not...er...


    They are however, as the man says, one of the greatest brass acts on earth, which is why I bought my tickets three months ago (Smug feeling of satisfaction)...
