    Grimethorpe are playing St John's, Smith Square, London on September 19th. Can anyone advise on whether this concert will consist of major works, or will it be a programme of lighter numbers? Thanks.

    The advert in the latest issue of The Brass Herald (issue 29, August to September 2009) gives Philip Biggs' phone numbers so I'm guessing that he'll have some more information.

    Durr. Never occurred to me to look up the venue's own website. Looks quite an interesting programme - possibly worth a train ride to the smoke for an evening. Thanks for your help.

    Incidentally, isn't the chap who is flavour of the month at the moment called Pallhuber, not Huber? Do we think perhaps someone (not Mr Green) is confusing him with Paul Huber, who wrote a few pieces for brass band back in the 70's and 80's?

    I really must get out more.

    It is Pallhuber, but Gareth has simply copied the listing given on the SJSS website. Should be a good concert - getting my ticket when I'm there for the National Youth Wind Orchestra concert next month.

    Yes ,I know, that's why I was careful to exonerate Mr G of any blame in my last post!

    If 4BR is to be believed, the mysterious composer Guerby is actually the less mysterious and more well known Martin Ellerby.

    Guerby = Ellerby
    Huber = Pallhuber

    Are there any more surprises to come I wonder? It sounds like the programme was dictated down a poor quality phone line after a heavy lunchtime session!
