Mark Newman & Lourdes Band hit a high note.

Mark Newman (Lourdes Band Principal Cornet) produced a performance at the recent IABCB National Band Championships that caught the ear of the adjudicator and won the best instrumentalist at the 2019 Championships. The Lourdes Band are extremely proud to see Mark receive such commendation, especially since the adjudicator was Mr. Alan Morrison, one of the all time great cornet and soprano players. The day was even to get better with the Lourdes Brass Band taking second place in the Championships.

As ever the Lourdes Band extends our thanks to the organising committee for their hard work in running the National Band Championships.
