"The Good, The Bad and the Ugly:
A Tribute to the Music of the West"

with guest Scott Lale as narrator

Brampton - The City of Brampton Concert Band under the musical direction of Darryl Eaton is excited to announce our concluding concert to the 2010/2011 Concert Series featuring the distinctive music born of the wild western frontier. Come take a break from winter with an evening of revelry, frivolity and some more thoughtful moments as we present "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: A Tribute to the Music of the West" at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday February 26, 2011 at the Rose Theatre.

The saga of the wild west was a mosaic of a thousand tales, of dreams won and lost, of riches made and squandered, of discovery, settling and taking root.It was truly a theatre on grand stage; lives and stories played out by innumerable characters over a vast and varied landscape.

To help us bring some of these tales to life and join them with our music, we are proud to have as our guest and storyteller for the evening, Scott Lale, prominent Brampton actor, and veteran of the local theatre scene.Scott will weave a narrative through the evening touching on the many personalities and people that gave the era its iconic imagery as we set these themes and stories to music.

The evening will also feature dancers from a local theatre group as they perform a selection of traditional western dances with the band as well as audience participation in song.Some selections will incorporate non-traditional instrumentation such as banjo, guitar and harmonica to provide an authentic musical touch to the programme.Our music will highlight popular and familiar music from the west including movie themes such as "The Cowboys", "The Magnificent Seven" and "Hang 'em High", thoughtful compositions that reflect on the majestic and varied natural beauty and music inspired by native lullabies dances and culture.

So don those cowboy boots, hitch the horse to the ol' wagon, journey over to the grand RoseTheatre and let the Brampton Concert Band regale you with a fun evening of music and lore from the wild west.
