Hi from Lincoln from another "Brassy Lady" introductee Will keep the intro short to start with. I'm a true blue brass band, born and bred type bloke. Started at Bede School Sunderland 1971 at the age of 11, and never really stopped since then. Main band at mo is RAF Waddington Voluntary Band where I am Principal Bb Cornet & Trumpet :-? & Posthorn :biggrin: ..... well they are a Full Military band now... with Oboes and Flutes and things that go sqweek in the night. My 'Real (Brass)' band is the Band of Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue , a small but acomplished group of players ( including Brassy and her Hubby). Question for you all ..... does anyone here play the bagpipes????
