This carefully-researched book is the culmination of over ten years of research by local musician and teacher, Eric Johnson. It traces the history of brass bands around Staffordshire and Derbyshire from the 1930s to the present day, including the Newhall Band, Tutbury Silver Band, Gresley Old Hall Band, Swadlincote Salvation Army Band, Utoxeter Brass Band and Derwent Brass Band. This fascinating collection of photographs and first-hand accounts recall bands whose members survived the Second World War to regroup afterwards and those which have recently formed.
