Music Out of the Pages: Folk Music

Soul Music by Terry Pratchett
He took the instrument. Folk music was not approved of in Llamedos, and the signing of it was rigorously discouraged; it was felt that anyone espying a fair young maiden one morning in May was entitled to take whatever steps they considered appropriate without someone writing it down.

Latest Abbey Brass News

Last Sunday, Abbey Brass took part in the 2013 ODBBA Winter Contest. This was the first contest that the main band has entered for about 11 years.

We were very pleased (and pleasantly surprised), therefore, to come away with 1st place for both our march and test piece in the unregistered section.
Congratulations to everyone who took part!

If you'd like to come and hear the band, our next concert will be on May 18th at St Helen & St Katharine School, Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
You can also see us perform at one of the venues listed in the right-hand sidebar.
