Huddersfield Percussion Workshop Fun!

Members of Loud Minority joined fellow Sambaistas from Slick Stick Sambastic and Honley Samba bands at Huddersfield University at the end of February for a percussion workshop given by Samba specialist Holly Prest. It was a full and very enjoyable day of learning, playing and exchanging ideas and we hope to get together with the other bands again sometime soon!

Check out our video to see some of the great sounds we made together

Grassy Fest Events Programme Out!

Very excited to be taking part in Grassy Fest again this year and leading the Opening Parade. The full programme of events has now been released and there we are in our full technicolor glory on page 4; can’t wait for June to be drumming in the sun!


New Rehearsal Space for 2015


After nearly three years of being based at Bondcroft Farm for practice sessions, Loud Minority is moving oer t’hill to Appletreewick Village Hall, which will offer more comfortable facilities, especially in the Winter months. Many thanks to Robin Clarkson for letting us make a big noise in his ATV store all these months; life will be much more peaceful for you on a Tuesday night now Robin!

Samba down on the Farm!

Just look at Elaine and her donkeys enjoying a spot of Samba practice up at Bondcroft Farm for the benefit of the Yorkshire Post. The donkeys are used to the sound of Samba drums as Loud Minority practice in one of the farm buildings on a regular basis, and now it looks like they’re eager to join in!
