Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 17 March 2019


Hello Brass Banders - Welcome to another two hours of brass band music from Sunday Bandstand. We have music both old and the not so old and some fabulous soloists.

Don't forget if you have a request or question about the world of brass bands I would be pleased to hear from you -

Walter Paul "Woody" English (1867-1916) was an American tuba player and band composer. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1867. He grew up in Dallas, Texas playing tuba in various bands. In 1891 he joined a circus band and in 1892 he joined the band on the McMahon Circus. During the next three years he travelled with various circus bands.

He played tuba in Carl Clair's band for the European tour of Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth at the turn of the century (1897-1903). He took up the conducting in 1907. In 1909 he played for Norris & Rowe (Smith). English spent three years with the Sells-Floto Circus. In 1913, he played tuba for The Girl of Eagle Ranch production, thereafter rejoining Sells Floto. Karl King and English subsequently co-authored a march, 'Howdy Pap'.

He died in Denver, Colorado in 1916. In 1984, English was elected to the (Circus Band) Windjammer's Hall of Fame.

On this week's show we feature what is recognised as his most famous march 'Royal Decree' played by the Sun Life (Stanshawe) Band MD: Roy Newsome - originally recorded in 1979.
