Uppermill Band’s tribute to Key Workers



Despite not being able to rehearse Uppermill Band have continued to be busy during the period of lockdown.

Uppermill Band have recorded a musical tribute to all key workers, with grateful thanks for all they are doing to keep us safe. This “concert in the living room” was recorded by individual players in lockdown and brought together using the wonders of technology! Enjoy this performance of “Under The Boardwalk” which includes our own key workers and features John Whittle on flugel horn.

Individual members of Uppermill Band have been playing from their own doorsteps adding a musical element to the weekly “Clap for Carers” throughout Saddleworth and several band members performed the Last Post as part of local VE 75 events earlier in the month.

In addition to being musically active during the past few weeks, members of Uppermill Band have been volunteering to make face shields for carers. This volunteer group was co-ordinated by  Bexan Ltd and produced 5,000 face shields which were distributed to 150 different care providers.
