Something About Yourself.
I learnt to play at Thornsett Mini Band, and then moved up the ranks at the main band from 3rd cornet all the way to principle. I then joined Chapel-en-le-frith Town Band (but still stayed at Thornsett) and I have had some fun times there. I then joined Tintwistle Band for a bit but found it was not the band for me. So I went back to Chapel. In 2013 and 2014 I did the regional’s with Besses o’th’ barn band under Alan Wycherley.
