Hepworth Band and the Yorkshire based folk singer Roger Davies are joining forces to release a charity Christmas CD in aid of the local homelessness charity “Simon on the Streets” Christmas appeal.
The CD features the band and Roger in title track “Christmas on King Street” and the band in a new arrangement of the traditional Christmas carol ‛Away in a Manger”.
On Friday 15 December, 7.30pm, the band makes a welcome return to Thornhill Parish Church, Dewsbury for a seasonal concert with Wakefield Youth Choir and soprano soloist Bethany Rosamond.
Tickets are available from the Church (01924 507782).
The Band was formed in the village of Hepworth, near Holmfirth, in 1882, making it one of the oldest brass bands in the country. Today, it competes in the Championship Section, making it one of the best bands in the UK.
It has had a proud contesting tradition since its founding, and in recent years, has won a string of prestigious prizes. At the same time, it runs its own concert series every year, supports local charities and other events, including the famous Hepworth Feast, and appears at other venues across the U.K. throughout the year.
The Band relies on generous donations from a number of companies, both national and local, for its continued existence. Since the beginning it has also relied heavily on subscriptions raised from local people, and this tradition continues today.
