    Congratulations Andy !

    CMFCB would like to offer their congratulations to Andy Dickinson on his appointment to the ISB. Andy joined CMFCB November 06, previous to this he had not played in a contesting Band however his performance on both the concert stage and contesting stage has been second to none and he fully deserves the position and recognition he has been given by this appointment..

    Andy also plays with Sheffield Citadel SA Band and we are sure that they would also like to pass on their congratulations

    Carlton Main are excited to announce that Philip Cobb will be playing for them at the Yorkshire Areas on the 2nd March. Philip will be renewing his acquaintance with the Band and we are sure that his presence will give the Band a massive boost as it begins it's assault on the areas.

    In addition to Philip other appointments have also been made over the last few days which will see the band put out it's strongest line up for many years.

    More new players

    :clap: The Carlton Main Frickley Colliery band is pleased to announce three new signings prior to the ‘area’ contest.

    First of all the band would like to welcome Leah Williams on Solo Horn. Leah is yet another teacher to join the band, and is currently Head of Music at Blue Coat School in Oldham. She has experience at the highest level gaining recognition as a soloist, winning the National Urdd Eisteddfod, regional Young Musician of the year award and becoming Welsh Open solo champion as well as Principal Horn with the Tredegar, the Fodens band and more recently the Sellers International Band.

    The band has also strengthened the trombone section with another former Sellers player - Rebecca Lundberg replacing Kevin Holdgate. Rebecca is an award winning musician having gained a First Class Honours degree, the Harry Mortimer Prize and the Studio Music Prize for Brass Band Arranging from Huddersfield University.

    And our final signing (for now), Toni Howden fills the vacant second Euphomium seat. Toni studied at Huddersfield Universitywhere she played solo euphonium with Home Silver and Old Silkstone bands befor joining the Sellers International band on 2nd euphonium. She became another member of the band to achieve the prestigious Harry Mortimer Award for Brass Player of the Year. Toni’s first engagement with Carlton Main was at the Stroud Subscription Rooms, closely followed by the Scottish Open competition.

    The band is looking forward to playing their new look band at the forthcoming area competition in Bradford!
