Friday April 29th sees the biggest event in the brass banding calendar. No, not the start of the European Brass Band Championships, but the Deiniolen Band's Annual Concert! This year we are glad to welcome back, as guest soloist, Iwan Williams from YBS Band. Iwan started his career in the Deiniolen Youth Band a number of years back (the same day as yours truly, in fact ) - and everyone at Deiniolen are extremely proud of Iwan's achievements. This year is particularly special, as Iwan is soon to be releasing his first solo CD - in fact, he will be performing four of the tracks from the CD at this concert. So for your chance to hear a sneak preview of the tracks featured on the disc, come along to Ysgol Brynrefail, Llanrug, on Friday, April 29th. The concert, which also includes performances from some of Wales' most popular vocal talent - John Eifion Jones (tenor), Caryl Hughes (soprano) and the ever-popular group Hogia'r Wyddfa, as well as the world-famour pianist, Annette Bryn Parri , is due to start at 7pm. Admission is a bargain £3 for adults and £1 for children - payable on the evening. More details will be announced on our web-site - http://www.deiniolenband.org.uk - in the next few days.
