Concert March – Le Tricot Rouge (Wilfred Heaton)
Probably intended for Salvation Army use, this march has proved very popular since it was first
published. The red jersey of the title refer to the colour of the shirts of the Tewit Youth Band,
Harrogate, where Heaton lived and worked for over 30 years. It could also refer to the colour of the
red jerseys worn for many decades by young people in The Salvation Army. Heaton’s musical joke in
this march occurs towards the end, where the band’s drummers threaten to bring the march to a stop.
