Despite a number of air and sea logistical problems, caused primarily by ‘Storm Erik’ we have returned from the Isle of Man having had a most enjoyable time recording with the members of the Rushen Silver Band.
The Band is based in the south of the island and is a thriving organisation including a healthy Training Band, Ballafesson Brass validated by the Isle Of Man’s Children’s University. They are supported by their active ‘Friends Group’ an enthusiastic and varied group of people who help to raise money and support the Band.
Rushen Silver Band’s latest recording, our third joint project is a Christmas CD featuring many well known traditional numbers in addition to some exciting new music. It is scheduled for release later this year to celebrate the Band’s seventieth anniversary.
To learn more about the Band’s work please visit their website, take some time to have a look at their informative and regular Rushen Silver Band Newsletter, indeed subscribe to it. You can also join them on Facebook.
Many thanks to all for such a pleasant, if at times frenetic, visit!
