Echoes of the North with Brighouse & Rastrick Band.
Take a trip back in time through music and film.
Made from more than a hundred fragments of archive film, Echoes of the North is a new silent film with a live brass band score. Travel down the highways and byways of northern life a century ago – its industries and rural life, its wartimes and festivals, its holidays, family excursions and huge, city-wide occasions – accompanied by Neil Brand’s new music, performed live by the world-famous Brighouse & Rastrick Band.
Ahead of Echoes of the North audiences will be treated to a concert of brass band favourites.
