    Kippax Band are delighted to announce the appointment of Soprano Cornet legend, Peter Roberts.

    The ex-Grimethorpe, YBS and Black Dyke star called band chairman Colin Moss, having recently returned to playing after a four-year lay-off.

    Colin comments “Peter came along for a blow and within a couple of weeks we were delighted to have secured his signature. To welcome a player of Peter’s calibre to our ranks is a real boost to everyone around the stand. His ability, experience and musicianship will be a real asset to Kippax.”

    Peter will make his first concert appearance with Kippax in a few weeks time at our next concert in the Kippax Band Club on 13th November, before a contesting debut at the Leicestershire Brass Band Association Contest on Sunday 27th November 2011.

  6. Getting his lip in for something bigger in 2012 perhaps? He's been sorely missed that's for sure, what a legend

    Bigger than Kippax?
    Hoping to be along for the November concert, for someone familiar with the unique qualities of the Kippax set up, this appointment is not that big a surprise. Good luck to Peter and the band, I'm sure there will be lots of enjoyment for both parties.

    I think I know where the best instrumentalist prize at Leicester is going... Will definitely come and listen to Kippax play now - it's the 1st section you're competing in, isn't it?
