Junior and senior band members participate in Bold as Brass

Finally, after several months of preparation, Bold as Brass gave an amazing concert at Elizabeth Fort in Cork on Sunday 21st of June.
Both junior and senior band members have been attending workshops with jazz musician and composer Jason Yarde since April. The concert was performed by 100+ brass musicians from County Cork, giving St.Fachtna's Silver Band members ample opportunity to make new musician friends and experience new musical ideas. They found the music itself exciting, unusual and very inspiring.
A wonderful initiative to be part of!

President's Salut on the 11th June

St. Fachtna's Silver Band catered for a cermonious atmosphere at the President's recent visit to Skibbereen. Not only did they play the President's Salut, they also gave the very best of their repertoire as the crowds gathered for the momentous occasion. In memory of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa, the band played "The Boys of Wexford" - a very suitable choice to go with President D.Higgins' passionate speech on Skibbereen's very own rebel.
Here some pictures from the day: click on any to enlarge.
