     rbrain08Richard Brain  -  1st Trombone

     I was in veterinary practice in Honiton for many years at the New Street Veterinary Centre, working with
     farm animals, 
pets and horses.  While already singing with the ‘Sheldon Singers’, which gave me  
     some  knowledge of reading music, I  started blowing the cornet at evening classes about 23 years ago, 
     after 
which a group of us formed our own musical group.  From there I joined Honiton Band on the ‘back
     row’,  playing 
second cornet, then repiano.  I played 1st Baritone, followng the retirement of Arthur Dunn
     from the band and am 
currently on 1st Trombone.  Apart from my musical interests, I also enjoy
     distance 
cycling and have cycled  from John O’Groats to Lands End, staying at Youth Hostels and with
                                               relatives.  I have 3 children
(all grown up!), scattered across the country and 2 lovely granddaughters.
