Rob Collinson


Join me for my show "A Postcard From The North East" airing on Saturdays at 5pm UK time here on Sounds of Brass. I'm Rob Collinson and I'm a composer/arranger based in County Durham. Although I'm entering my fiftieth year as a "bander" my work isn't exclusively for brass bands. Each hour-long show will have "featured" and "guest" bands, with the occasional "showcase" thrown into the mix. You'll hear familiar and not so familiar bands and music drawn from my personal experience. Look forward to your company. See you soon!
