WOODFALLS Brass Band is playing a concert with the Black Dyke Trombone Quartet in memory of trombonist Dave Shelley at St Laurence Church, Downton on May 10.
Mr Shelley, a great-great-grandson of the founder of the Woodfalls band, died last March after 51 years of playing trombone for Woodfalls. Such is the respect for Mr Shelley that the world famous Black Dyke Trombone Quartet are making the journey all the way down from Yorkshire to appear at the concert.
Woodfalls Band will be also be appearing at the concert, having just been ranked the 18th best brass band in the world.
Woodfalls bandmaster Paul Williams said: “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 free concert starts at 7pm. A retiring collection will be made on behalf of the British Heart Foundation.
