In “From The Bandroom” this month we meet the Hepworth Band from Last Of The Summer Wine country.
Hepworth has competed in the Yorkshire championship section since 1999 and has enjoyed some considerable contest successes since then, winning the Scottish Open, the Grand Shield twice, and having had several trips to the Albert Hall. The band has recently acquired a new young Musical Director, in the form of Ryan Watkins, previously solo trombone at Brighouse and Rastrick.
We are in for an evening of the highest quality musicianship and we’ll talk to Ryan, as well as to some recent high profile signings, about where the band's been and where they’re going.
Just for fun, see if you can identify the three short extracts from the programme. Comment below if you know what they are, and please, no spoilers from the band!
From The Bandroom with the Hepworth Band, 10pm, Tuesday 26th November on East Leeds FM.
