This edition celebrates the easy talent of young players, before anyone told them how difficult it all is.

Many of the fully fledged top bands such as Black Dyke, Fodens and Brass Band Willebroek have their own youth sections and we get to hear the results of their fantastic and supportive efforts alongside some outstanding individual talents.

How about the super and understated playing of a cornet player from Belgium or our own Award winners from the UK. They’ve all moved on now from these recording, but Frank brings us this snap shot of amazing talent just before some of them entered college or as they move on to other things, but they will all be carrying these youthful memories of high class music-making wherever they ended up. 

Find out more and listen to all the music, in our 9th, 45-minute music podcast where we salute the talent of youth!
