Leeds Best of Brass 2018/19: Black Dyke Band
With Music Director Nicholas Childs at the helm, Black Dyke Band won the 2018 Yorkshire Regional
Championship, a title it has claimed 22 times. The band has always been at the forefront of brass
band activity, making one of the earliest brass band recordings in 1904 and embarking on a five month
tour of Canada and the United States in 1906. Black Dyke has over 350 recordings to its name and has
provided background music for television and film. From its very earliest days Black Dyke Band has
always encouraged young people to enjoy music at the highest level; in 2006, under the guidance
of Nicholas Childs, the band formed the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.
