    .... in 1759, Georg Friedrich Händel died.

    That's it, really! Perhaps we can carry this on; a thread of music related anniversaries (better still, brass) for each day of the year?

    Any other contributions for today?

    Regards

    I'm afraid there's not much overlap between brass band and American country music :shock: :)

    15th April 1989 - The Hillsborough Disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans died watching their team in an FA cup semi-final. If anyone is interested have a look at the liverpool website where there is some lovely tributes and pages for those unable to visit the ground. A very sad day.
