In what was definitely the highlight of recording this album so far, I’ve had Stannington Brass Band in the studio recently.
This lovely bunch have been adding their immense talents to what I think will be the album’s opening song, ‘Not Now, Horse’. Here’s a six second preview (that’s all you’re getting for now!):
Having never worked with a brass band before I suddenly have two in my life, as I’m going to be accompanied by Cornerstone Brass at Sheffield City Hall, one of the many bands playing for free that night to raise money for the Women of Steel fund. They’ve written an arrangement for Sheffield Shanty, one of the two songs I’ll be performing at the event. Tickets here!
I’ll be back shortly with another gig announcement…
