This Web Ring links together brass bands on the Internet. Whilst it is primarily intended for traditional British style brass bands throughout the world, other brass ensembles, wind, military, marching or concert bands may join. Other web sites related to brass playing, banding, brass instruments, music and supplies are also welcome.
Visitors to the site can then click on the appropriate links to move to other sites in the ring. There are over 400 active brass band sites in this ring.
The Brass Band Webring is a separate entity to the IBEW (Internet Bandsman's Everything Within). The webring provides a linked means of visiting similar sites in sequence. The IBEW is a formal, structured directory of information and links relating to brass bands.
Contact the Ringmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any queries about the ring or to notify me of of any dead links in the ring.
