Geoff McGregor featured the North Carolina Brass Band on the 1 August edition of Brass Encounters. This band was founded in 2014 and its 28-member instrumentation is closely aligned with that of the traditional British Brass Band. With roots in Industrial Revolution-era England, through the North American Brass Band Association, the popularity of brass band music has been increasing steadily in the United States since the mid-late 20th century.
“The North Carolina Brass Band’s debut album, ‘First in Flight’, is an amazing testimony in ensemble musicianship and performance.”
