Martin Irwin from Brighouse and Rastrick wants to say thank you Matthews Norfolk Brass who he's played with recently whilst working in the area; he even managed to play with them for the tv.

 

Martin Irwin from Brighouse and Rastrick wants to say thank you Matthews Norfolk Brass who he's played with recently whilst working in the area.

Martin told 4BR:

'During a recent 4 month work spell away in Norwich, I sat in with Matthews Norfolk Brass in order to keep my lip in shape for contests and concerts with my own band back home on weekends.

Soprano

I would like to thank David and the members of the band, in particular Richard and Katie Wilson, for making it such an enjoyable 4 monthsMartin Irwin

Conductor David Stowell and the band made me feel very welcome, and allowed me the flexibility to sit anywhere on the cornet section where there was a gap each night. I particularly enjoyed playing Soprano cornet again. We also had the occasional drink in the bar afterwards!

I would like to thank David and the members of the band, in particular Richard and Katie Wilson, for making it such an enjoyable 4 months. They’re a great bunch, and I wish them all a great Christmas and a happy and successful 2007.

Highlight

The highlight for me was playing Soprano cornet with them on a BBC Songs of Praise recording at the Thursford Collection in North Norfolk. It was the Christmas Spectacular, and will be screened on BBC1 on Christmas Eve.
