    The Cottingham Band is pleased to announce the appointment of their new Musical Director, Sam Kind.

    Sam has extensive playing experience, both at home and abroad, playing Bb bass with bands such as Ransome, Yorkshire Imperial (Urquhart Travel), and most recently East Yorkshire Motor Services Band.

    He also enjoyed a very successful spell as conductor of York-based Ebor Brass.

    Sam has recently taken the decision to step-down from EYMS, in order to concentrate on conducting Cottingham.

    In the short term, he is busy preparing the band for their forthcoming Christmas concerts, but already has one eye firmly on the North of England Area Finals in Darlington next March and is looking forward to leading the band in a busy concert and contest programme in 2007.

    Commenting on his appointment, Sam said “I am looking forward to working with the band. There is a strong core of players here who have impressed me immensely with their enthusiasm and dedication and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

    Very best of luck to Sam and the band. Cottingham had a great band a few years ago and I'm sure that Sam has the expertise to guide them back there.
