hi all, has anyone got any programme notes for bass in the ballroom? thanks :wink:
Roy Newsome composed it for Peter Wells who was then playing solo Eb bass at Black Dyke Mills Band. Peter went on to play with Yorkshire Imps and Hammonds Sauce Works Bands before taking up the baton. He conducted Harrogate (and Yorkshire Railway Institute Bands), and is still playing, with Harrogate.satchmo shaz said:hi all, has anyone got any programme notes for bass in the ballroom? thanks :wink:
