Sorry we had some downtime there - and it took a while for our webhosts to work out what was wrong, but we got there in the end.
Thanks to everyone for their continued support of Besses in recent months. More news and website updates to come soon!
This is sure to be a sell out concert at the Elizabethan Suite, Bury Town Hall, Bury BL9 0SW so order your tickets early.
Besses o' th' Barn Band are delighted to announce the appointment of Trevor Halliwell as their new Musical Director.
A cornettist from the age of 9, Trevor's talent was spotted as a young player by members of Wingates band. He went on to become assistant principal at Foden's, before returning to Wingates where he held the principal position for ten years, also winning the coveted title of Champion Soloist of Great Britain 1979 and playing principal trumpet with the Haffner Orchestra.
Trevor brings to the band a wealth of experience as a player, teacher, adjudicator and conductor. In his conducting career, Trevor has taken numerous bands including Stalybridge, Marple, Hoover Bolton, and more recently leading Golborne band to promotion into the 2nd section.
The band are very excited to be working with Trevor as they approach their Bicentenary year in 2018 and would like to invite any players who would like to come for a blow to join us at rehearsals every Tuesday and Thursday 8-10pm at the band room, 2 Moss Lane, Whitefield, Manchester M45 6HG.
