The present band was formed in 2001 by members of the former Crich United Silver Prize Band. It started with four dedicated players and has grown from there, even boasting a training band for many years. In recent times, the band has gone through a period of transition, and this year it gained a new conductor – James Findlay, a former member of the band.
With a history of brass bands in Crich going back to 1885, it’s really important that the tradition continues. The band practises once a week on a Tuesday night and we’re always on the lookout for players of any standard. Maybe you had brass lessons at schools and would like to start again? An instrument can be loaned free of charge if you don’t have your own, and we can provide free tuition to get you started.
Crich Brass is a friendly and inclusive group with an age range from 14 to 85, so all newcomers will be made welcome. Currently the band doesn’t compete, playing purely for pleasure and the satisfaction of entertaining an audience. We’re an important contributor to Crich events, including the fete and Christmas carols around the tree.
