Brett Baker touring Japan, Australia and New Zealand

Written By: David Read Comments: 0

Star trombonist of the Black Dyke Band, Brett Baker will be living out of a suitcase this summer as he plays an extended solo tour around Japan, Australia and New Zealand. After successful smaller tours in previous years he's been invited to several more destinations this time, allowing him to expand his role as an ambassador for the strong British brass band tradition. At the end of June he will be flying to Japan for concerts, followed by performing in the New Zealand Championships in July. This is immediately followed by Australian guest solo performances with bands in Cairns and Adelaide, then back to New Zealand for soloing in Wellington, before a CD recording back in Melbourne and once again back to New Zealand for concerts in Christchurch and Dunedin. The tour extends until 20th August when Brett can finally come home. No doubt when he returns he'll be straight back into intensive rehearsals for the British Open with Black Dyke!
