After almost a year without a regular Solo Horn, Hatfield Band are pleased to announce this position has now been filled. Miles Davison has officially joined and played his first concert with the band on October 21st and is looking forward to his first contest with Hatfield on 19th November at The Wilkinson Northern Open Brass Band Championships. Miles began his playing career at the age of eleven with the Lanner & District Silver Band. On moving up north, Miles joined Grimsby Band before he went on to play Principal Horn with Brodsworth Colliery. Moving to the Principal Horn chair with Desford Colliery Dowty Band in 1988 Miles enjoyed many victories, including a hatrick with Desford in 1989. During his time at Desford, Miles was involved with their successful quartet group winning the British Open Quartet Championships two years in succession. Since leaving Desford Colliery Miles spent twelve months with the Stocksbridge Engineering Steels Band, a spell with the James Shepherd Versatile Brass before being invited to play Principal Horn with Black Dyke (Mills) Band. Not only is Miles an excellent horn player, he has also enjoyed conducting bands going as far as New Zealand to train the St Kilda Band of Dunedin who became National Champions in 1991. After taking a break from playing last year, Miles decided he was ready to return to the brass band scene and Hatfield are thrilled that he has decided to make his 'comeback' with them. We wish Miles a long and enjoyable time with Hatfield Band.
