On Sunday 13th July Burneside Brass under the direction of our MD Mr L Johnston performed at one of our annual events, the Summer garden party at Cove House Silverdale.
Once again the event was blessed with glorious sunshine.
We opened our performance with the March Glorious Victory Arr D Higson and continued with Pride of the Fair Arr L Johnston, Vincent Arr L Johnston, The 1914 March, Yesterday, Jerusalem, The Acrobat, All in the April Evening and we closed our first half with a March specially written to mark the 20th Anniversary of Burneside Brass entitled Advance Westmorland L Johnston.
After a welcome break of cups of tea and scones we retook to the stand and began the second half with the March Cavalry of the Clouds, I’ll Take You Home again Kathleen Arr L Johnston, Mary Poppins, To the Front Arr L Johnston, Eternal Father Arr L Johnston and we concluded our days performance with the march Boots and Saddles Arr D Higson.

We thank our two Deps today Jullian Holling and David Pye who made special trips from Yorkshire to help us out.
We also thank two of our own band members who despite a sudden family bereavement in the early hours of this morning still attended today’s engagement despite them both grieving for a close family relative. Burneside Brass send our sincere condolences to all family members at this sad time.
