Brass is Leathermarket bound !
As a brass and wind musician and teacher Ann-Marie Atkins wanted to put together a group with all of these instruments in mind. And so the band was formed: a group of players and friends passionate about playing live music with or without the need of amplification. They play we soul, funk, jazz, reggae, afrobeat, calypso and everything else in between!
You can catch them in Leathermarket Gardens
