    Emley Brass Band are thrilled to announce the addition of some new key players.

    Roy and Linda Taylor have joined us from down south, having taken the massive step of relocating to Yorkshire from Gosport.
    Roy will temporarily shore up the 3rd cornet part for the upcoming Yorkshire Area Finals Contest while Linda will strengthen the 2nd Baritone Part, and then after the Areas Contest Roy will take up the Principal Cornet seat while Linda will become our new Principal Euphonium.
    We are extremely excited about our latest additions and we are sure that they can only help the band to continue it's steady improvement.

    Our current Principal Cornet, Rachel Firth, has very kindly volunteered to move on to another of our currently vacant positions and will become our Flugel Horn player after the Areas.
    Emley band would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm thank you to Rachel for her time and performances as our Principal Cornet, and with her quality now on Flugel, added to the new Principal seat additions we feel the future is looking even brighter for the band.

    Another of our new additions is Eirian Davies who has recently joined us following a brief break from banding. Eirian joins our Euph/Bari team to add further strength and quality and we would like to take this chance to formerly welcome her to the band as well.

    You can see the full details of our new and changing band lineup here;

    I am especially looking forward to introducing the band to the works of "Rockney" legends "Chas and Dave". The annual band pie, mash and jellied eels dinner and dance will also I feel be a great hit.

    We're both looking forward to coming up to Yorkshire and joining a great bunch at Emley and we already feel welcome in our new home!
