SqueezEast 11th June 2023


Slideshow accompaniment - I Dream of Jeanie/Beautiful Dreamer by Stephen Foster
Arranged by Paul Barrett
and
Give My Regards to Broadway by George M Cohen
Original arrangement for brass band by Matt Kingston
Rearranged for concertinas by Paul Barrett

We had an excellent day, playing a range of pieces sourced and arranged by our conductor Paul Barrett. Our band included piccolo, treble, baritone and bass instruments, and had English, Anglo and Duet concertinas. Our move to Stilton Pavillion proved to be a success, a lovely new hall, with excellent acoustics, as you will hear on the recordings.

We thank all our participants and the organisers and helpers for making the event so enjoyable and we look forward to making more music together on 9th June next year.

Turn on (and off) each player in turn to hear some of the tunes we learnt during the day.
