“More Than Brass”

“More Than Brass” is the title of the second recording by the all female brass band ‘Boobs and Brass’. We recorded the album over the past weekend in Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire with a band of fifty players and their special guest soloists, soprano star Michelle Ibbotson, flugel players John Lee and Mark Walters, with euphonium soloists Alison Bonnar and Trevor Groom.
The conducting duties were undertaken by Martin Dawson and John Hudson and the music recorded is a wonderful mix chosen by the soloists themselves, the players and supporters with some particularly emotional and personal requests.
The CD is due to be launched at the band’s annual concert which is being held at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering on the 19th of November with a similar event at the Cutler’s Hall in Sheffield on the 11th of December.
