Our new trad jazz ensemble the Two Rivers Footstompers
made their debut appearance at the Festival of the Beck today, expertly led by Swing Band Director Trevor Vincent on trumpet.
The festival was organised by the Friends of Bradford's Becks https://bradford-beck.org/
The sun shone for us and we had a great time.
Water themed tunes were: Down by the Riverside (now renamed "Down by Bradford Beck"; Canal Street Blues; and Lazy River. Many thanks to our enthusiastic audience.
Local songwriter Eddie Lawler also entertained. Follow the YouTube link to hear his song about Bradford Beck.
A new film about the Beck and the important conservation work being done by the Friends was premiered today at the Festival. It will soon be available to watch on YouTube.
The event was funded by City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, the UK Government Levelling-Up Fund and Friends of Bradford’s Becks.
