A New Era

After nearly 30 years as the sole distributor of music by Andrew Mackereth, I am delighted to announce a partnership with Editions Marc Reift.

The partnership recognises that the music publication market is saturated with small to medium enterprises trying to compete with a few really successful big fish. In choosing EMR to partner with, I believe that they have the right profile, distribution and share the BBP mission of bringing engaging music to musicians of all ages and abilities.

This isn’t the end of us, however we will focus on the less commercially attractive pieces and pieces with a religious character.


Welcome to the Blow & Believe Publications website.

Our Vision

Our vision is to fill the world with music.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide affordable music to musicians of all ages and abilities.

Blow & Believe Publications was founded in 1995 as an outlet for the compositional output of Andrew Mackereth. Andrew had been arranging music since his late teens but had very little success in attracting the interest of brass band publishers. It was a friend that admired one of his arrangements for young band that suggested that other bands might also be interested in buying graded music that would appeal to their less experienced musicians.

All the best,

BBP are pleased to announce that following customer feedback we have added an additional search facility that includes a listing for Solos. We hope that this will make the site a lot easier to navigate.

Solo Sensations

Our feature for the Autumn period is works for solo instruments and here are a few of the most popular:

Saints on the Slide – this jolly romp for trombone and small band is based on the gospel song: Oh When the Saints.

Great is Thy Faithfulness – this piece was written for Flugel Horn legend: Robert Foster and is based on the hymn of the same name.

Bonny at Morn – this melancholic number is based on a folk song from the North East of England and was written for Trevor Winch of the Felling band.

Swing Low – this tour de force for Bass Trombone or Tuba has been recorded by Douglas Yeo, Marco Beeldman and Les Neish. BBP has the exclusive rights to sell this arrangement.
