This second disc in the By Request series from Grimethorpe Colliery Band features a wide range of concert repertoire conducted by Dr Robert Childs and Ray Farr. There is some stunning solo work on display from six of the band's sterling soloists as well as a guest appearance from Frank Renton.
The idea of a recording was first talked about at the historic gala concert after the The National Brass Band Championships in 1997. The trombone sections became instant friends. This CD is a collaboration of the trombone sections from both Black Dyke Band and The ISB. Profits from the making of this recording go to Air Ambulance.
Every track on 'Grimethorpe Entertain' is a première studio recording, and with eight original compositions combined with seven skillful arrangements we have endeavored to create a release that not only entertains, but also showcases new repertoire from some of our finest composers. David Childs
