The band has undergone some recent changes to its line-up. Firstly, we are delighted to welcome Alastair Greenhalgh on Solo Cornet from Blackburn with Darwen Band and Estrellita on 2nd Horn. Estrellita returns after an absence from banding of many years, although we are too polite to say how many!!
Gavin Coleman has moved from Principal Cornet to Flugel, and his place has been taken by former Assistant Principal Tom Duddle. Carol Harper moves to Assistant Principal from the Repiano seat, which in turn has been filled by Liz Elliott formerly on the back row.
MD Brian Harper says “These changes are testament to the ability and willingness of these individuals to adapt to changes in personnel, and we are fortunate to have recruited both Alastair and Estralita to our ranks, especially in the current climate of player shortage in banding generally”
