Thread Name: Folk music parts for concert band
Subject: RE: Folk music parts for concert band
If you are looking at music from the UK, look for music for Concert wind band rather than brass band.

Concert wind bands tend to be a mixture of brass and reeds with flutes thrown in for good measure. You will usually get parts in C i.e. at pitch, and in Bb and Eb as these are the common transpositions. Bass parts are in Bass Clef.

Military bands often use a similar mix of instruments, especially for concert performances, so you can often use parts intended for military bands.

AFAIK, Brass band music is exclusively in Bb and Eb and all parts are in treble clef.
