You may have noticed that yesterday's post about Trevor Groom linked to a site called 4 Bars Rest, which is from the U.K. They generally cover the music scene, especially brass bands, in England and Europe. Below is a link to their podcast page. One highlight on the page is the podcast from the 2007 National Championships of Great Britain. In it is an interview with euphoniumist Michael Dodd, as well as a sample of the winning performance of Music for Battle Creek by Philip Sparke (performed by Grimethorpe Colliery UK Coal Band).
