Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 23 January 2017


Foden's Band will travel to Armagh for the 17th consecutive year on the 3rd of February 2017 for their annual gala concert and young soloists weekend hosted by Armagh Old Boys Silver Band. 

Young Soloists Rehearsals & Performance

Speaking ahead of the forthcoming weekend Ivor Stevenson commented 'Every year we see outstanding developments and talent in the youth performances which take place during the day on the Saturday. It is a great opportunity for young individuals to practice and perform a solo accompanied by the Foden's Band. The number of young folk participating every year grows, which is encouraging to see. 

The event will take place at Armagh Old Boys Band Hall – Little Barrack Street

on Saturday 4th of February between 10:00 – 15:30 (inclusive of lunch reception)

Any soloists should contact myself to confirm your place and must bring accompanying band parts.

Following the Young soloists performance we look forward to a concert by Foden's held at the 1st Presbyterian Church Armagh  commencing at 7.45pm on the 4th February which will also see the launch of the bands latest cd release 'Patrons Choice X. '

These events are sponsored by Armagh Old Boys Band – Charity no NIC 101904

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
