Life Stories: Richard Evans

BrassPass.tv brings you the first instalment of the life of the great brass band entertainer Richard Evans.

  The life story of Richard Evans is being aired for customers

The irrepressible Richard Evans is the first subject on BrassPass.tv new video series, 'Life Stories'.

In conversation with Martin Gernon, Richard gives a candid, riveting look into his life as a player and conductor, as well as into the more private and personal side of his life.

Filmed in Leyland, so synonymous with his musical life, his story, split over two 1 hour episodes makes for incredible viewing.

Amazing day

Martin told 4BR: "We had an amazing day of filming with Richard, the difficulty being editing the footage as there is so much that people will enjoy watching time and time again.

So we didn't miss much out, we decided to devote two full episodes to Richard's amazing life, and we trust that viewers will enjoy both episodes as much as we enjoyed filming them. Richard is unique and this comes across so clearly in the film."
