Besses Boys would like to announce the engagement of James Holt, an Old Boy and current Baritone player with Besses o’th’ Barn, as their new Musical Director.

We would also like to publicly express our thanks and wish Complements of the Season to James, Matt Stringer — a previous Musical Director and old boy and Roy Sparkes — a long time friend of the band, for coming to the rescue and conducting the band. Each of them taking one of our last three concerts of 2004 at very short notice following the earlier than expected departure of John North.
