Carlton Brass mourns the Death of Loz Briggs After coming third at The Midlands area contest Carlton Brass were saddened to learn of the death of a founder member. The trip back home was marred by a phone call informing us of the untimely death of a former member, trombonist Lorraine Briggs. Lorraine was fondly thought of by all members of the band and will be long remembered as one its true characters. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Lorraine’s family and friends. Lorraine would have enjoyed our after-contest bash back at the Fox & Hounds, where we laughed about some of her old exploits. Lorraine faced many problems in her life but we know she got great enjoyment from her time in the band.
