From Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games celebrations to the Paris Jazz Festival, Young Pilgrims have entertained crowds across Europe with their rock influenced brass band sound. Originating in Birmingham this 9 piece band, led by charismatic Scottish trombonist Richard Foote, have performed at a range of festivals and venues including Love Supreme Festival, London Jazz Festival, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and Lunar Festival, winning fans for their energetic and engaging performances.

In their hometown they’ve made a name for themselves with their monthly Pilgrimage shows which present them alongside guest acts from across the country in the cities legendary Hare & Hounds venue. Their debut album, ‘Little Things’ released in 2016 on Birmingham’s Stoney Lane Records, comprises largely original tunes by penned by Foote, full of catchy melodies and danceable grooves.

Young Pilgrims are:

Richard Foote and Kieran McLeod – Trombones

Mike Adlington, Sean Gibbs and Aaron Diaz – Trumpets

Michael Owers – Sousaphone

Andy Isherwood – Baritone Saxophone

Jonathan Silk and Euan Palmer – Drums

“They are not only one of the finest brass bands we’ve seen but one of the most energetic, vibrant and fresh artists around. The perfect festival act!” – Mostly Jazz Festival

“The Young Pilgrims appeared as if from nowhere, spontaneously creating a performing space and delighting festival-goers with a New Orleans-inspired chant. The band is fronted by two athletic trombonists (always a bonus) and powered by an impressively funky (and equally impressively bearded) sousaphone player.” – John L Walters, for the Jazz Breakfast

“ What it always is is a good-time, get-up-and-jump-around band, but at the same time it’s satisfying to listen to without getting out of your chair. The arrangments are inventive, the counter melodies clever, the horn voicings not always obvious.” – Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast
