    Sad or what but I am on holiday for 2 weeks in North Devon (Bideford), commencing 10th July, and was wondering if any bands in that area would welcome a very temporary visitor?

    I know that Bideford Town Band have made me very welcome in the past, but are there any others?

    I will play anything form 3rd Cornet -> Eb Bass (Excl Bass Trom - rubbish @ Bass Clef).

    Any info on concerts/events etc greatly received too.

    Try Tiverton Town Band. I know it's not exactly North Devon (more Mid Devon) but my brother plays Bass Trom for them and they are a friendly lot! :)

    Thanks for all the Info. I found 4 bands in the area - Bideford, Appledore, South Molton and Torrington, but of all their websites, only Bideford have an invite to Holiday players!
