So that’s it for BRASS 2015, what an incredible four days it has been. We’d just like to thank all of our performers, volunteers, funders, supporters and of course, you, the audience – thanks for making BRASS 2015 an unforgettable festival!
This year’s line-up was jam-packed with awesome concerts from the likes of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Cory Band and Tredegar Town Band and Benny Goodman & Glenn Miller at Carnegie Hall 1939.
We got a little BRASSical in 2015 with the introduction of classical events across Durham including Dunedin Consort performing Monteverdi’s Vespers, Grand Tour and Buccaneer by His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, and Red Note Ensemble’s Sounding Brass.
We had a fantastic line-up of free events too – the BRASSiest street party in the North East returned as bands took to Durham’s streets, squares and bridges in festival favourite Streets of BRASS. There was the introduction of Alternative BRASS hosted by BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, and Hope and Social and New York Brass Band headlined our amazing Big BRASS Bash tour which took outdoor extravaganzas to Consett, Shildon, Trimdon Village, Seaham and Spennymoor.
Thanks again for your continued support and we’ll see you again in 2016!
