8th September 2013 - Hardraw Brass Band Festival

This is the bands first go at contesting for over 20 years. It won't be the last as the beer, company and scenery were all great! It was a lovely day out at Hardraw Scar (near Hawes). Oh and we played some music.

The programme - well worth 50p as we are in it!

(You can just see Peter in the background waving his
arms around - the rest of the band are there too (honest))

Off to the waterfall - it's why we went

Listening from the hillside - the hills have ears

This chap was amazing! And so was his band!

View from the best seat in the house - the acoustics were amazing up here!

The massed band playing at the end of the day

Pegs always come in handy at an outdoor venue -
they stop your hat blowing off

Could have gone for a nice walk in the country - maybe next time

Peter still managing to serve coffees on the bus on the way home - amazing!
