All that Brass!

Who was Daisy Squelch and what was she famous for? Why did the Bean Brothers Brass Band have a rumble with James Walker’s Band in York and what did politics have to do with it? What is it about contesting and drinking? And how does the women’s suffrage movement link with banding? This week’s All That Brass delves into the lively history of brass bands in York and further afield – and there’s plenty of music too, from classics to Cuban and from sunshine soul to jazz trad and street in All That Brass, 8.00-9.00pm with Kate Lock.
