What can beat sitting in the park having an ice cream, with people out on the boating lake, kids playing in the paddling pool, and the sounds of a brass band wafting through the air?


Well that's what the crowds in the Mooragh Park in Ramsey were luck enough to enjoy on Sunday afternoon as Castletown Band made it's annual trip to Ramsey (however this year it will be 2 trips!). A large crowd listened as the band went through a programme containing standards such as Punchinello and the hymn tune Crofton, to easy listening pieces such as Amarillo and One Moment in Time. There was also the odd Manx tune with Major Thirtle's Manx Airs 2, and the solo for the afternoon was played by Brian Osborn who gave a rendition of a Michael Buble favourite, Cry Me a River. 


Commenting, Musical Director John Collings said, "It's always nice coming up to Ramsey and playing in a great setting, especially when the sun is shining!".


The band's next concert is on Tuesday 24th June in St Georges Church in Douglas as part of the St John Ambulance's annual concert. We are also at Laa Columb Killey in Ballabeg on Thursday 26th June, followed on Sunday 29th June by the Veterans Day Parade and Concert.
