Besses o' th' Barn Band
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.

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.
Light Cavalry Overture. Without a shadow of a doubt.
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.
