4BR Quiz: Weekend quiz

Something to while away the hours as we endure lockdown restrictions in different tiers, forms and guidance this weekend...

  While away a few hours on the latest 4BR quiz to win a trio of great CDs...

Its a quiz with a bit of a difference to enjoy this weekend.

All you have to do is give the one word answer to the following questions — then use the first letter from each to come up with a rather pertinent adjective to describe our current banding circumstances.

There are a trio of the latest CDs from Black Dyke, Richard Marshall and the aptly names 'Music for Isolation' duo of Rie Takeuchi and Gideon Juckes to be won.
