New brace at Camborne

Cornish band announces two new signings to bolster their playing ranks.

Albert Hall
  MD Kevin MacKenzie has welcomed the new signings

Camborne Town Band has announced the signing of two new players.

Andrew Rice joins on bass trombone, whilst Emma Jackson comes in on second horn — both from Bodmin Band.

Welcome

MD Kevin Mackenzie told 4BR: "I'm pleased to welcome Andrew and Emma. We've been without a bass trombone for a while and as a specialised position I'm delighted Andrew, who has such experience comes into the team.

Emma was previously playing solo horn with Bodmin and has enjoyed a very successful time with them, as well as directing the training band which she will continue to do. She is such a valuable signing for us."

Thanks

Kevin added: "I would like to thank Graham Christophers who has moved from horn to cornet. This enabled the new signings to take place and at the same time fill the remaining outstanding cornet position."
