the band

Under conductor Barry Bleasdale we are a friendly, hardworking and developing band with a growing reputation in east Lancashire. Our players are drawn from a wide area within the county, meeting to rehearse on Friday evenings from 7.15 to 9.30 p.m in Cambridge Street Methodist Church, Accrington. Typical concert programmes consist of marches, overtures, military band classics, popular and solo items interlaced with arrangements of music from films and musicals. A leaning towards the traditional military or concert band repertoire has gained us appreciative audiences throughout the area. Many of our current members are seasoned players, but we do welcome younger or less experienced musicians who are keen to join with us in the pleasure of striving to perform worthwhile music.

Baxenden Concert Band is especially pleased to support the work of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, particularly as one of our most established members is afflicted with MS. The annual "Cake Break" is an ever popular event despite the problems of crumbs getting into the works!
