In “From The Bandroom” this month, the last one we recorded before the lockdown, we’re visiting our first Midland section band, albeit in the extreme North West of Derbyshire, as we visit the bandroom of the Tintwistle Band.
They've been around since 1888 and in that time have had many successes, including a number one hit single.
After a huge fundraising effort in the 1990s, the band managed to secure their own bandroom and a new set of instruments, setting themselves up for the future.
We'll speak to some of their members, their MD, Andrew Mallon, and, of course, have an entertaining mix of pieces from the band.
From The Bandroom with the Tintwistle Band, 10pm, Tuesday 28th April on East Leeds FM.
