A surge in the recruitment of exciting talent to The Fairey Band continues with the appointment of Gary Curtin on Solo Euphonium. Gary brings a rare level of commitment and a healthy appetite for learning, sharing the bands enthusiasm in the pursuit of becoming world-class outfit. He joins us from Wingates band, with which he spent a successful 3½ years since leaving his native Ireland. Also joining the section on 2nd Baritone is Matthew Taylor, who joins his Uncle Brian at Faireys to become the third current band member to follow an elder generation of their family into the band. Gary replaces Mark Bousie, who has stepped down from the band along with his fiancée Jayne. We wish them well with their future commitments.
