We are absolutely delighted to announce that on 15th July 2017 the band will be performing a joint concert with the Cory Band, the World’s Best Brass Band.

Cory Band

The Cory Band, whose home is in Treorchy in the Welsh Valleys, comprises both male and female performers of mixed ages and backgrounds, hailing from near and far, but with one thing in common – the drive to do whatever it takes to keep Cory the world’s highest ranked brass band. 

Cory cemented their position as the world’s No.1 ranked band in 2016 by becoming the first band in history to win the European, British Open, National and BiC titles in the same calendar year. The band are proudly leading the traditional form of Brass Band amateur music-making into a new era by exuding a palpable sense of dynamism and professionalism.

Shepherd Group Brass Band’s MD Richard Wilton, commented:

We are tremendously excited for the opportunity to play alongside such a world-class group of musicians. The Cory Band have completely revolutionised the world of top-level banding in the last few years and this an incredible opportunity for all the players of my band, and one that I believe will benefit them for many years to come.”
