Traditional Brass

Capital Concert Brass was formed in 2001, by Ewan Campbell and Alan Mann to give an outlet for the brass musicians around the area. Currently a non-contesting band, it is a friendly and encouraging group, pleasing to audiences and consistently being asked back at gigs. The band was not always non-contesting, having competed in first and second sections of the London and Southern Counties Region until 2007.

CCB has in its repertoire a large library of
traditional brass music, much inherited from the days of the former Hanwell Band and some more recent aquisitions including some in-house arrangements and compositions.

We cover a wide variety of styles and genres, ancient to modern, but always try to give them a brass twist.



CCB do things slightly differently. Although forrmed on the basis of a  traditional brass band, we have enhanced the musical experience for players and audience alike by recruiting musicians who can double on instruments not usually associated with the brass line up. This expands the scope of tonal quality, versatility and musical styles available, whilst retaining our brass band routes."

One benefit of this is that any new recruits wanting to learn brass but already proficient on another instrument will not feel out of place whilst the band are playing more advanced material, as they will more than likely have a part on their first instrument, if not, we'll usually make one!

So non brass playing musicians willing to learn, bring your first instrument too!
