Mallard 4468: When hobbies collide

Regular readers of the blog will know I have more than a passing interest in both brass bands and the railways. Well, I recently discovered that there has been a piece composed about the Mallard, written by Dan Price.

It’s entitled ‘Mallard 4468’ but has since been re-named ‘Blue Thunder’ and recorded by the world famous Black Dyke Band on a recent CD.

It’s world premiere performance was given by the National Children’s band of Great Britain – have a listen below and see what you think.….h?v=A7rU0HJGZUA
