Foden's Heritage update

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 31 July 2018


On the 27th March Foden's appeared in concert at Sandbach Town Hall.

The concert was the conclusion of the band's 'Heritage Project' funded by the Heritage Lottery. The project lasted fifteen months and saw the digitisation of the bands impressive history which included band photographs, programmes, historical documents, articles and player profiles. Foden's digitised over 140 78's (outside of copyright) and also recorded a number of pieces from original manuscripts.

The concert gave the band an opportunity to display some of this history and to perform pieces from the original manuscripts to a capacity audience.

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
