HITTING the right note as part of their 150th anniversary celebrations are Burbage Band who have released a new CD entitled “In Concert”.

The CD reflects the wide choice of music the band might typically play at one of its many public performances.

Musical Director Steve Critchlow, said: “The band are very proud of the finished product and so far sales and comments from the public have been extremely positive.”

The CD costs £8 and is available from Sidebottom Jewellers or Hargreaves in Buxton, via the band website www.burbageband.co.uk or calling Steve on 01298 79152.

In March this year the band’s celebrations were given an extra boost when they became the 2011 Midlands Champion band, and as a result in two weeks time they travel to take part in the National Finals.
