Black Dyke Band

In 1816 Peter Wharton founded a brass and reed band in the Yorkshire village of Queenshead later to become Queensbury. John Foster, apart from being the founder of Black Dyke Mills, played French Horn in this band. It has been said on many occasions that Black Dyke was formed from it; however this is not strictly true, as Peter Whartons band went out of existence through loss of members. In 1833 a new band was formed named Queenshead Band, which may well have contained players from the former band. Black Dyke Band is the most recorded band in the world with over 300 recordings and growing every year.
