Foden's launch lockdown podcasts

The ever inventive Sandbach band is making sure it is reaching out to its fans all over the world.

Fodens
  The podcast will be broadcast once a month for the next six months

Foden's Band has branched out into a new performance sphere with the launch of the first of their 'lockdown' podcasts.

The series of six monthly broadcasts, produced using funding received from Arts Council England, will bring together music from the band alongside interviews from members of the extended Foden's family.

In July's edition, host John Barber talked with Lions Youth Brass MD Nigel Birch, Foden's Patron Irene Garner and Foden's Youth Band principal cornet Nadia James.

Each month there is also a mystery Foden's player to identify with the help of clues to guess their identity throughout the show.

Enjoy:

The first podcast can be enjoyed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z8WpUXXaFE
