Event: Brass Tracks at Teatime
Venue: Salvation Army at The Pleasance
Date: August 13th – 15th, 2013
From the sensuous serenity of soaring trumpets, via the tantalising timbre of a gorgeous trombone, and the dulcet delights of a pulsating horn, to the deep wisdom of a richly rewarding tuba, this ensemble penetrate the soul and can also get the body rocking to their jazzy rhythms. Amazing musicality and vibrant versatility all round.
Brass Tracks took to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the first time in 2013 with their Brass Tracks @ Tea Time with a programme of light classics, jazz & swing. We performed in the Salvation Army Hall over three dates at the Pleasance from 5.30pm and everyone got a cup of tea and a cake. Rehearsals took place at the Edinburgh College Music Box which has superb facilities for bands, singers and brass quintets. Brass Tracks first Fringe Festival appearance luckily proved popular and we have received some nice comments from people who were there. Brass Tracks have since performed each year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Brass Tracks, quite possibly the only quintet to open with a medieval piece from Susato and close with Madness’ “Baggy Trousers.”
