Spectrum Music prove a big hit in France
SOUTH Devon-based Spectrum Music joined forces with Worle Wind Band and crossed the English Channel for their annual tour.
More than 30 musicians travelled through Brittany playing their music to crowds in Morlaix, Concarneau and Roscoff.
In Morlaix they played a selection of tunes including West End melodies to the Saturday morning shoppers.
In Concarneau the two bands got together in the evening sun and played to crowds of more than 100 tourists and French locals.

The tour ended in Roscoff where the local Mairie invited the band to play as part of the programme for their European festival. The day was full of entertainment including a parade through the harbour town.
Julia Ratcliffe, musical director of Worle Wind Band, conducted the combined bands after the recent departure of Spectrum's musical director.
Spectrum Chairman Roger Carter said: "It was great to join forces with Worle Wind Band, and for Julia to conduct the two bands. This was the first time the two bands had come together, but it surely won't be the last as we already look towards our next tour in 2013."
