"Keeping a top class brass band going is not easy these days and keeping it consistently at the top of the rankings and filling concert venues is even more difficult, so enjoy two tracks from the latest CD from the current National Champions Foden’s.

There are solo features for Derick Kane and a certain Jonny Midnight, plus we mark the closing of an unrivalled musical door as Paul Hindmarsh retires from directing the Festival of Brass after more than 30 hugely successful years.  Head to my latest Beyond the Barlines podcast for more on this as well."

Don't forget our free podcast, which is available on all the normal podcast platforms, simply called Frank Renton on Brass, it features Frank's Track of the Week from this Music Podcast and a track that conjures up a memory of something that has been important in Frank's life of music. You can find it on this website via this link.
