A spokesperson for the band told A4B: After an early start and final rehearsal to finalise the finishing touches to the test piece Lydian Pictures by Simon Dobson, they took to the stage. The start was confident and this continued throughout demonstrating style, musicality and quality. The band have worked hard and this came across in their performance. This was followed by the 1st place result.
One thing is clear, Redruth Town Band are growing in commitment and dedication under the new musical direction of Mr Craze. He brings a wealth of experience and professional musicianship to the Town Band.
