    Nice to hear that Nigel Darbyshire was featured on Radio Leeds "Yorkshire Brass" prog last Sunday.
    Sandwiched between tracks from Brighouse and Fodens his fine performance of "The Cornet King" with Kippax Band was given an airing ~ Class act Nige !
    I'd like to hear more of the the unsung heros of banding given an outing on the airwaves.

    Thank you very much for that, Mr Wilx. I have just listened to Nigel's solo on BBC iPlayer. Most enjoyable.

    That's great to hear :)

    When I used to play with Lofthouse (2000 - 2003) Nigel used to come along and play now and again and I was always impressed with his playing. To a beginner like me it was probably the best cornet playing I experienced outside of recordings and watching the area once a year, and he was certainly an inspiration to younger and less experienced players alike.
