Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20: Black Dyke Band

In 1816 Peter Wharton founded a brass and reed band in the Yorkshire village of Queenshead – later to become Queensbury. John Foster, apart from being the founder of Black Dyke Mills, played French Horn in this band. It has been said on many occasions that Black Dyke was formed from it; however, this is not strictly true, as Peter Whartons band went out of existence through loss of members. In 1833 a new band was formed named ‘Queenshead Band’, which may well have contained players from the former band. It is reported that this band reached its zenith from 1838 to 1843, at which time it consisted of 18 musicians.

Black Dyke Band is the most recorded band in the world with over 350 recordings and growing every year. It is also the most successful contesting band in the world having won the European Championship thirteen times, most recently in 2015, the British Open no fewer than 30 times (most recently 2014) and the National Championship of Great Britain 23 times (most recently 2014). In 2009, and again in 2011, 2012 and 2013, the band became Champion Band at the English National Championship and were named English National Champion in 2014 by virtue of having won the National Brass Band Championship in October 2014. The band are the current Yorkshire Champion, having secured an unprecedented hat trick of wins 2016, 17 and 18.

This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series.
