    'Fairey FP Music are pleased to announce that with immediate effect Nick Walkley has been appointed Principal Cornet and Gareth Brindle as Solo Euphonium. Chris Pannell has also been appointed Solo Horn and will take up his position after this weekends Grand Shield.

    Much has been said over the last few weeks regarding the band, most of it totally inaccurate. It had become clearly apparent for some time that the band needed to change in a number of ways - management, players, financially and direction. Now that our contesting commitments have been fulfilled, these changes are being made. We would like to thank all our players over the last few years, many who have traveled great distances for their time and commitment. We wish them well and hope to keep in touch with many of them.

    Further appointments will be made public after the Grand Shield and Cambridge contests as new players fulfill their commitments with their existing bands.'

    I don't know, but well done to Nick! Nice one mate. I remember you 'helping out' on flugel with Worcestershire County Youth Band, good to see you where you belong!

    Hadn't Ian Porthouse announced months ago - like last fall sometime - that he was leaving Fairey's?? I thought that he was simply continuing with them on principal cornet until they could find a replacement.

    Keep watching the Faireys website for updates, I've made a few changes today besides the press release. I'm keeping the site upto date temporarily, as I have left the band as well, so it's better to always use the address, as the site will move sometime.

    don't know all the details but just looked at the website and in the players section there are quite a few gaps. :shock:
    I'm sure you'll get yourself sorted with another band (if you want to) straight away.

    Cheers Phil, but I think I need a break from band commitments! I've more than enough playing to keep me ticking over :wink:

    Have you heard these players?! I'm sure they'll make a fine job of it!

    Go and make us proud lads!!! :p :D
  12. Ian announced he was leaving just before Christmas, and intended to finish with them then, in order to continue with Pennine Brass. Which he kinda did do.... but he helped out a couple of times afterwards, and ended up playing at the Yorkshire Area last minute. He is no longer with them, and in full time conducting :D
