This blog is an ad hoc collection of postings about some of the background, sources and news related to research in the history of brass bands, as collated in the IBEW website.

The IBEW is the major reference source on the internet for brass bands history – as well as material and directories relating to the world of brass bands and brass musicianship today.

Gavin Holman created the IBEW in 1997 and the site now contains details of some 12,100 brass bands and 8,400 images of vintage brass bands. A comprehensive brass bands bibliography is only one of many other resources freely available on the site.
