Yvonne was a very special lady and friend to all of Lydbrook Band; as well as playing 2nd cornet, she was the bandroom janitor and looked after uniforms. She often took the trouble to chat to me after rehearsals of my music, something I really appreciated.
This is a recording performed on tour at the Kościół Mariacki, Katowice, Poland, 25/05/19, with photos gathered from concerts, rehearsals and events.
