Hearing Vince DiMartino play always a Brass Band Festival highlight, festival officials on WKYB-FM Thursday morning (Larry Vaught/Verizon Video)

By LARRY VAUGHT

The Great American Brass Band Festival starts Thursday night in Danville and runs through Sunday afternoon.

If you want to hear special music like that from Danville’s own extraordinary trumpet player Vince DiMartino (above in video), here’s your chance and it is all free.

Robin Cooper, Brass Fand Festival executive director, will join me on WKYB (107.5 FM, wkybfm.com) Thursday from 9-9:30 a.m. to talk about the festival.

Tom Tye, a long-time festival volunteer and parade chairman, will be on the air with Cooper.

Jenny McClure, director of Friday night’s Bayou and Brass, will join the show at 9:40 along with Jennifer Kirchner, another festival volunteer and executive director of the Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Burea.

That foursome will have all the information you want on everything about the festival and what makes this such a special weekend in Danville.
