With the Redbridge Brass Band.
After working with musical arranger Peter Wraight (Matthew Herbert Big Band), the chart-topping indie rock band British Sea Power will be touring UK venues performing their favourite songs from a ten year back catalogue in collaboration with championship brass bands from across the country.
British Sea Power are a six-piece band originating from Cumbria, Yorkshire, Ealing and Shropshire who have released seven albums since 2003 and are currently the longest-serving band/artist signed to Rough Trade Records. Their track Remember Me was voted number 9 in the most important hundred tracks of BBC6 Music’s lifetime by the station’s listeners and have enjoyed an array of muscial endorsements from the likes of David Bowie, Jarvis Cocker, Radiohead and Flaming Lips.
Redbridge Brass Ensemble formed started competing in 1970. They formed out of the Redbridge Music School and entered the top level Championship Section in 1986 where it has remained ever since. In 2008 Redbridge made its Glastonbury debut performed live on stage with ‘Hot Chip’ in front of 40,000 people.
This is the first time British Sea Power have entered a music collaboration with another performing group and this project has been two years in the making already. BSP are known for their sell-out rock performances as much as they are for their sensitive film scorings, including the recent ‘From the Sea to the Land Beyond’ which has now been released by Rough Trade as British Sea Power’s seventh LP and was voted Guardian’s album of the week in December 2013.
This project gratefully acknowledges the support of Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation as well as De La Warr Pavilion as co-commisioner along with principal commissioners Barbican Centre London and Brass: Durham International Festival.
