Sunday Bandstand 27 January 2019 - A Tribute to Roy Roe

Sunday Bandstand 27 January 2019 - A Tribute to Roy Roe

It was reported that Roy Roe one of the best soprano cornet players of his generation recently passed away. A segment in the second half of this week's show is dedicated to Roy and his years playing with the Band of the Yorkshire Metals during the 1970s. 

This was a period in the band's history when along with Roy the band went through a purple patch culminating with the 1978 National Brass Band Championships at the Royal Albert Hall in London when the band was crowned champions.

This show has a 1979 recording of the test piece and then three other pieces including a solo, a duet and a cornet section feature and closing with an arrangement of the National Emblem march which you will not have played by any other UK style brass band. The segment opens with the band's signature march.

To read about Roy's outstanding brass band career please have a look at the Bandstand Memories section on my website.

Enjoy the show
