Woodfalls Band will be also be appearing at the concert, having just been ranked the 18th best brass band in the world. The band have won the right to represent the South West at the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall twice in a row, coming sixth in 2013 making them the highest placed southern band in twenty years.
Woodfalls Bandmaster Paul Williams said “this will be a fabulous concert, both the band and the Black Dyke trombones are preparing some lovely music for the event. It would be fantastic to see the church packed out to remember our dear friend and musician Dave Shelley plus raise lots of funds for a very worthy cause.”
The concert starts at 7pm and is free to attend. A retiring collection will be made on behalf of the British Heart Foundation and band funds and refreshments will be available.
