  Laura Conway of Black Dyke and Michael Cavanagh of Brighouse & Rastrick will be rivals on the weekend

With the brass band movement keen to build on the popular acclaim that has been generated by the recent brace of high profile television series on Sky Arts and the BBC, leading photographer Lorne Campbell has been ensuring that national newspaper outlets know all about the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall on the weekend.

Featured in print

Lorne's images regularly appear in the likes of 'The Times', 'Daily Telegraph' and 'Guardian' newspapers, and he has just sent off another series featuring two players from the great Yorkshire rivals of Black Dyke and Brighouse & Rastrick to hopefully be featured in print before the weekend.

Partners

They show partners Laura Conway of Black Dyke and Michael Cavanagh of Brighouse & Rastrick (above) who will be putting away any affection they have for each other for at least 20 minutes on Saturday as they look to help their bands claim the title.

It is sure to be a memorable occasion for them both — and especially for Michael who celebrates his birthday on the day of the contest.
