Besses o' th' Barn Band
Matt and Daisy have been Rocks at Besses o'th' Barn Band since 2008 as Players, Band Managers, and All Round "Complete Bandsmen" (Brass Banders).
They took on a huge task and were core to the rebuilding of this Famous Band after very difficult times throughout the early 2000's that saw Besses slip from Championship to 2nd Section Status in dramatic fashion. Daisy decided to call it a day after this years NW Areas and Matt has now decided to take a breather himself.
Banding is a pasion that can burn you out, especially if you work as hard as these two Besses Legends have done.
We salute you both and will endeavour to continue building on your fantastic work.
Besses o’ th’ Barn announce that they have mutually parted company with Musical Director Alan Wycherley. The band would like to place on record their gratitude for Alan’s work during his tenure as MD. A band spokesman said "We would like to publically thank Alan for his work with the band since September 2012 and leaves us with some memorable concert performances. We wish him and his family good health and send him every best wish with his next banding project."
The band are looking to appoint a new MD as soon as possible and so are inviting applications for the position as of today, with auditions to begin imminently. The successful applicant will be available for rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 8-10pm and will be expected to contribute to the band’s progression towards our Bicentenary in 2018.
