Blackweir Brass

Consistingof 5 young, but experienced musicians from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Blackweir Brass was established in early 2016.  They draw influence from many sources, and their varied backgrounds in performance. Some hail from areas with strong brass band tradition, the rest have spent time playing with wind bands, symphony orchestras and even in pit bands for musicals. Also taking inspiration from famous brass ensembles like that of Philip Jones, Septura Brass and Canadian Brass, Blackweir Brass aim to bring a mixture of styles totheir playing. As a result, their repertoire covers everything from Baroque to Contemporary, with some interesting deviations in between!
