British Sea Power announce ‘Sea of Brass’ Tour

British Sea Power have announced an Autumn tour taking in 6 different venues playing with local brass bands along the way. The ‘Sea of Brass’ tour had today been confirmed with the towns playing host including Durham, Bexhill, London, Gateshead, Coventry and Kendal. Full listing can be found below.

Peter Wraight, the tour’s music arranger said, “I wanted to create Brass Band arrangements which made full use of the forces within a 28-piece Brass Band. I didn’t want to lean on some of the pastoral associations with brass music but instead create something challenging for the players and hugely rewarding for the listener. It’s about playing with textures, and I am using a full percussion section to compliment the toned instruments and create drama and excitement.”

British Sea Power tour dates:

Durham International Festival, with NASUWT Riverside Brass Band (July 17)
Bexhill De La Warr Pavillion with Redbridge Brass Band (October 24)
London Barbican Centre with Redbridge Brass Band (25)
Gateshead Sage with NASUWT Riverside Brass Band (26)

Kendal Secret Venue with Ulverston Town Brass Band (8)
