Besses o' th' Barn Band
As an update to this previous News Article I have been able to add images from the Besses recent recording session in Liverpool.
It was a great night but a little sad regarding the pool bloke who turned up to audition for Besses on Trombone. He looked very impressive as can be seen by his image at the end of this selection of images from the night
"All the gear but no idea", he was told that he would be better off just wagging a stick and maybe killing a few flies.
Besses were invited to the recording facilities in Liverpool, of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Tuesday 23rd June 2015.
The session was organised by Besses MD Simon Cowen and the Band spent the night perfecting a recording of the famous hymn "Jerusalem"
A quote from MD Simon Cowen summs up the experience very nicely
From the very depth of my heart I want to thank the wonderful Besses o' th' Barn Band plus all our guests for tonight's magnificent recording of Jerusalem.
To make it even more special it was the very first time a brass band has played at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra's rehearsal venue, The Friary, Liverpool. What a most perfect acoustic for a band like Besses.
Once this recording is produced we will dedicate it to the late Roy Newsome who recorded the same piece with Besses thirty years ago. I think it would have made him very proud.
Thank you band.
