In the first of a new series of extended interviews, 4BR Editor Iwan Fox meets the legendary euphonium player Lyndon Baglin.

He talks about his background and early years of playing with the likes of CWS Manchester Band, as well as with Black Dyke, Brighouse & Rastrick and Stanshawe.

Lyndon also talks about some of the great conductors he played under such as Alex Mortimer and Walter Hargreaves — and gives us his views and opinions on euphonium playing and modern banding.

He is a player held in the highest respect around the banding globe — and a true legend of the brass band world.
