MUSICIANS who make up the district’s newest brass band, Sutton’s Got Brass, have secured a place at next year’s Countryfile Live event at Castle Howard after wowing show organisers on Sunday.

The group had been invited to go along and play after sending in a demo tape of their music and after finishing their repertoire to an appreciative audience, were invited to attend in 2020.

Member and trombonist Jeremy Law said it had been enjoyable and fulfilling for the band and was delighted the day they had chosen to appear turned to be the best of the four-day event.

The band hired a minibus from Skipton Self Drive and were able to fix new banners around the bandstand thanks to the Co-op Community Fund donations.
