Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20: Grimethorpe Colliery Band

Grimethorpe’s diverse concert performances include those at the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision, and London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, together with a wealth of national and international television and radio appearances and professional recordings. The band’s Musical Director Sandy Smith is a prolific arranger for brass bands, having had his work recorded and performed by all of the leading UK bands.
