Who is the best bandperson of the year?
Richard Marshall no question, always a top class performer and also does so much to help others!!
Helen Williams from Foden's - fantastic flugel player
There is one person head and shoulders above any this year - Ian Williams
The little man from Cory has played a blinder this year and deserves this award.
Thank you Ian.:clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:
Nominations so far:
Helen Williams (Fodens) - nominated by MrsDoyle
Richard Marshall (Black Dyke) - nominated by Kjata
Ian Williams (Cory) - nominated by Po
Wilky, Fodens. Years and years of service to the same band. A guy who doesn't overdo it with the self publicity and an excellent musician.
Only three nominees so far?
Can we add:
Michelle Williams (Tongwynlais)
Matty Williams (Fishburn)
Elaine Williams (KM MEdway)
Neil Williams (Hathern Band)
I'd like to nominate Jean Hanslip
Mark Wilkinson Fodens
David Childs Cory Band
Strange category this one, I can think of a couple of people that are deserving of the award, but then again there's lots of people in banding I don't know that could be more deserving because of the work they do at their bands. How on earth is the right person going to be picked? So far the names all seem to be the corner men in top bands and most voting for them probably don't even know whether they are decent bandsmen or not, they're just voting for someone they like. It's not really the same is it?
The person I nominated wasn't in a top band - she was in my band until recently so I definately know how commited she is. But I agree with you that this award will be hard to decide.
So, you know how committed this person is - I however don't! This is indeed an odd category.
Separate names with a comma.
