Redruth Town Band were outstanding performers at Brass Band National Finals of Great Britain in Cheltenham
In a contest made up of 18 bands, Redruth finished as runners-up, producing accounts full of detailed precision and warm ensemble sounds backed by excellent solo contributions that brought the stylistic character of the music to the fore. At the helm, the direction of Andrew Craze spoke of the hard work spent on banding basics that resulted in displays of mature musicality. He drew some wonderful playing from around the stands; the music having a rich sense of character and dynamism balanced by lyrical interludes and plenty of stamina in the tank for a thumping close.
They gave the judges the "lyrical quality we were looking for", with judges stating that it meant it was a very difficult decision to make in the box.
Adjudicators commented that their performance was full of control and character, with lovely lyrical lines with precise playing. A very enjoyable performance, lots of energy, colour and composure.
Redruth returned home proud with their efforts. A band with a rich history dating back to the 1830s, it has been rejuvenated in the last year by the return of local lad Andrew.
And whilst it's rare that a performance as good as theirs misses out on top spot at Fourth Section level, you suspect they are a band to watch out for in the coming few years.
