Fish & Chip Shop Inspires Brass Band
A fish and chip shop on the Isle of Wight has become possibly the first in the world to have inspired a brass band march to be written about it.
Composer Andy Norman was so moved by the generosity of the Corries Cabin takeaway in Cowes, that he decided to pen the piece of music for the shop.
The conductor of the Cowes Concert Brass Band wrote the music after the shop's proprietor Richard Quigley donated to the group £250 collected during a fundraising event.
Mr Norman, 48, said: "I have written several pieces of music for the band over the years and when I heard we were getting help from Corries Cabin, I thought it would be nice to write a piece in honour of the shop which is extremely popular with locals and visitors.
"It lasts about three minutes and is written in the style of a traditional brass band march."
A framed copy of the music is to be presented to Mr Quigley to hang on the wall of the shop.
Mr Norman, a professional musician, said: "If the music is displayed in the shop I'm sure it would become a talking point - I'd be surprised if there is another piece of music anywhere dedicated to a fish and chip shop.''
Mr Quigley said: "I couldn't feel more proud for the shop and its staff.
"I will certainly play the music in the shop and sell copies of the band's CDs if it's appropriate.
"While the band is not a charity that saves life, it's an important part of Cowes life and they enrich people's lives."
