New year, new venture as Newstead Brass Blow Away the Winter Blues
Posted on Jan 20, 2019 by Mike Allcock
Newstead Brass are preparing for their first concert of 2019 titled Blow Away the Winter Blues at Papplewick & Linby Village Hall on Sunday February 10th at 7.00 pm.
Blow Away the Winter Blues will add a modern twist to the traditional sounds of brass as Newstead Brass demonstrate why they were the highest placed midlands band at the prestigious 2018 Bolsover Festival of Brass with a varied programme of brass and favourites mixed with more recent additions to the brass band repertoire. Contrast will be provided by guests Malin Hill, a Nottinghamshire based English Folk Duo combining guitar, violin and voices to provide traditional, modern and original songs with an indie edge.
Standard admission price is £6 per person, but as the concert falls on the Sunday before Valentine’s day the organisers are offering a special deal of two for £10 for advance tickets (and the two don’t have to be lovers…) . Tickets can be reserved at www.ticketsource.co.uk/newstead-brass-band or by calling 0115 9680563.
A band spokesman explained, “This is a new venture for Newstead Brass as we’ve, surprisingly, never played at Papplewick & Linby Village Hall. It looks like an excellent place to visit. Local people are always complimentary about our performances each year for Hucknall Remembrance Parade and enjoyed our Christmas carols at Hucknall Tesco in early December so I hope they’ll take this opportunity to come and enjoy a concert of popular music from the band and our guests Malin Hill”.
