Barton Town Band
by James - 08:12 on 21 March 2010
Although my interest in brass band music began with Brigg Town Band, it was with Barton Town Band that I really started my musical education.
Year Contest Section Position
2006 Regional 4 1
This is a remarkable performance by any standard and, surely, the band must be promoted into the Championship Section for 2011.
Stuart, his brother Phil and I were the Barton trombone section in the early 1970s. I recall playing The Bold Gendarmes with them at a contest in Cleethorpes as well as more than a few performances of the Frank Bryce favourite, Trombola.
Phil went on to play with Black Dyke.
