    Whit Friday 2013

    I went and had a blow with the mighty "Tartan Brass" at the weekend, needless to say it got blimmin cold at 10pm in a kilt! What a contest though, first time I've been, and one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had. Great laugh!

    Paddy's West of England Area - 2013

    I believe we aren't competing at Weston this year, but Cheltenham will be my last with the band as off to RWCMD in September. Are you off to Cheltenham? :) Maybe see you up there! And the band have been promoted :) Well done for the performance last weekend, I didn't have you where you finished.

    The Hot Canary

    Hello tMPers... Was wondering if anyone knew whether the Hot Canary has been released for general sale? Or if anyone knows where I could get hold of it? Something I've wanted to have a plug at for a while. Cheers now!

    Euphonium Quartet

    Hello all, I am forming a Euphonium quartet in Cornwall and was wondering if anyone knew of any good sites of music for this ensemble, or may be able to help us directly with music. Thank you all!
