This work ws commissioned by the Bolsover International Brass Band Summer School (BIBBSS) in memory of David Morris, a valued member of both the Summer School and Festival of Brass team. The light-hearted, traditional-style march is playable by most levels of bands. Because of its popularity, it has been declared the signature tune of the BIBBSS.

A donation from each sale of this title is being made to fund the Dave Morris Bursary Fund, to aid young people who need financial support to attend the Summer School. Course leader Steven Mead describes the work as “A really outstanding composition, based on the traditional march format, but with a freshness and excellent thematic material. It is a brisk march in 6/8 that is a delight to play and to listen to.”
