Foden's pay their respects to Alan Lawton

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 21 June 2021

Like so many others across the banding world, all at Foden's were deeply saddened to learn of the death of our good friend Alan Lawton.

Alan's contribution, work and dedication to brass banding - especially in the North West of England - was immense and he leaves behind a wonderful legacy of music making and friendship.

We would like to dedicate this performance in Alan's memory - John Golland's arrangement of 'Deep Harmony', the parts to which were gifted to the band by Alan himself.

Rest in peace, Alan.


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
