In this month’s edition of From The Bandroom we are at the Salvation Army Citadel in Castleford for a concert featuring two bands. Kippax are the home team, fresh from coming first in their section at the Yorkshire Areas, and, all the way from Norway, we welcome the Manger Folkehøgskule brass band who are visiting the UK for a concert tour. The Folkehøgskule band is a stepping stone for some of the best young players, both in Norway and the UK. Zoë Wright, solo horn with Hammonds, studied there, as did Seb Williman, assistant principal cornet with Carlton Main Frickley, who we interview in the programme.
From The Bandroom with the Manger Folkehogskule and Kippax brass bands, 10pm, Tuesday 28th May on East Leeds FM.
