Christopher Lydon

Started Playing

I started on cornet at primary school, and then was instructed by the head of music from my soon-to-be secondary school that I was to be his next tuba player. I thought, "Well, fair enough." And thus it was.

Previous Bands

No previous, m'lord. (Brass bands, that is.)

Memorable Banding Moments

Blackpool, Blackpool, Blackpool. Memorable, certainly.  Oh, and there's one particular Soprano cornet player who has a special place in my heart... You know who you are.

Favourite Piece

Light Cavalry Overture. Without a shadow of a doubt.

More about

I spend most of my time with young offenders, actors in caves, folkies and rockers in a chicken shed studio or with some of the country's finest young musicians. It's an odd life, sometimes.
