The European Championships has a special place in my heart and to be able to attend as an audience member after all these years was a brilliant experience. It also meant catching up with my many friends from all over Europe which was very special after such a long time away.
I got to play a few concerts with these guys in White River Brass, Kirsty Abbotts, Chris Turner, Ben Dixon, Brett Baker and David Thornton...fun!
The standard of playing from the competing bands was just mind blowing, a brilliant showcase of stunning brass playing from all!
Congratulations to our friends at the Cory Band for retaining the title, a brilliant achievement.
