dobro

 

acoustic guitar

with a metal resonator

built into its body.

 

This resonator

serves as an amplifier.

 

In contrast to acoustic guitars,

the placement of the resonator

takes place of the sound hole.

 

Therefore

the shape of the guitar

doesn’t tend

to have an affect

on how the dobro’s sound

is amplified.

The brass band world

loses a leading light

 

From The Guardian archive

 

Monday June 22, 1953

Guardian

 

Mr Fred Mortimer, who conducted Foden's Motor Works Band in all its major successes during the past 27 years, including eight of the nine occasions on which it won the national championship, died at his home in Elworth, Sandbach, on Saturday night. He was 73.

Mr Mortimer, who was born at Hebden Bridge, estimated that he had broadcast with Foden's Band on 250 occasions. He became a bandmaster at the age of 20 and was an active conductor until a few months ago, when he became ill.

J. H. E. writes: The death of Fred Mortimer deprives the brass-band world of one of its best-known personalities. A modest and friendly man, quite unspoiled by a run of successes unique in band history, he was known to hosts of enthusiasts in this country and abroad.

He devoted the greater part of his life to the band movement and was much in demand as an adjudicator at contests and as a professional coach.

He will best be remembered, however, as conductor of Foden's Band during the most brilliant years of its career. There was nothing spectacular about his own contributions to its public performances, during which he was characteristically self-effacing.

His unobtrusive and straightforward manner of conducting, which contained nothing to cause remark save that it was left-handed, may have deluded some onlookers into underestimating his capacity. One had to observe Mortimer in the bandroom to realise with what patience, tact and skill the performances had been prepared.

Mortimer was bandmaster when Foden's Band won the Belle Vue championship on three successive occasions during the 1920s, conducted by a famous professional coach, the late William Halliwell. But when the band accomplished the far greater feat of recording two hat tricks at the national band festivals during the 1930s, Mortimer conducted the winning performances himself.

The policy of the organisers of the contests confronted bandmasters with new and challenging demands. That Mortimer won so consistently during the 1930s when special test pieces were being written by Elgar, Ireland, Bantock, Bliss, and others, is sufficient indication of the breadth of his musical accomplishment.

In 1936 he and the band were invited to represent English brass-band music at the Government Empire Exhibition at Johannesburg, and a South African tour was carried out with success.
