Brassy Women

Brassy Women

Large Print - 2009
Rate this:
These ladies are nothing if not brazen to the end! Lancashire in the early 1960s. The heady world of the brass band is almost entirely a male preserve. Except for the Adlington Ladies. Put together in piecemeal fashion with conductor Lucy at the helm, their aim is to beat the all-male Great Hulme Motors Band at next year's brass band festival. Each member of the women's band has her own life outside band practice, and their trials and tribulations are related with gentle northern humour. Even their motley collection of instruments presents problems, with the chronic lack of a drum kit (and a drummer) - and a piano that turns traitor!
