Brass Durham International Festival

For over two weeks (July 5 - July 21) Durham City and several surrounding villages will resound to the sound of brass instruments - heard in many different formats. Marching Bands, Brass Bands and various jazz inspired outfits.
For readers of this blog the outstanding event will most surely be the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra's presentation - In The Spirit of Duke. Held in the Gala Theatre on July 8 this is an opportunity to hear, in my opinion, the number one big band in the UK and possibly elsewhere if reports of their recent visit to New York are anything to go by! Tickets are £17.50 and £12.50 (concessions). Don't miss out they are simply sensational!
Other delights include The Northern Monkey Brass Band, Hannabiell and Midnight Blue, the Baghdaddies, New York Brass Band, Jazz in my Pants and many more.
