I started learning to play with St Swithun’s Band in Bridport in 1969 and then joined Honiton Band in 1970. I
continued to play for both bands for about 10 years. I started on cornet, moved onto flugel horn and I now play
1st tenor trombone. I have a daughter who used to play Eb bass, but unfortunately is no longer banding. I had
to leave the band in November 2007, as I relocated to Bristol, following promotion at work. I was very sad to
make the move, but return to play with the band at their engagements when possible.
