Meet the Band   HORNS


     Stephen Childs   -   Solo Horn  





      Edward Colman  -  2nd Horn

I joined a brass band when I retired.  We had just moved to Verwood and giving somebody a
lift in our car.  We were discussing things we would like to have done.  I said I’d liked to have
played in a brass band but it was too late now.  No it isn’t came the reply.  It turned out that
she conducted the training band.  She put me in touch with a past band member to learn the
rudiments.  He took one look at me and said “the baritone for you” (I suspect it was the only
instrument available).  From there I joined the training band and entered one of the most
enjoyable aspects of my life.  Playing with a brass band gives me tremendous pleasure.  I am
lucky to have found Honiton Band, who are a grand bunch of people.  I only wish that I had
started to play when I was younger.

avey   -   Flugel Horn 

I learned to play the tenor horn in Sidmouth Town Band when I was about fifteen and stayed playing with the
main band for several years.   About seventeen years ago I was invited to help Honiton
Band at a few concerts and
having enjoyed the experience, decided I would like to join the band.   After a couple of years, I
took on the job of
playing Soprano Cornet and hopefully have improved a lot since, playing many solos and have recently moved to Flugel Horn.   I enjoy playing in Honiton Band very much - I think the band has a wonderful group of people, especially the committee who manage the band so well.  I also play in Exeter Railway Band and help out in other bands when needed.
