Tredegar Town Band are pleased to announce the signing of Stephen Barnsley on soprano cornet. Steve is one of the elite soprano players in the movement and the band are delighted that he has chosen to play with them. Steve Ruck, who was playing soprano, has moved onto the front row whilst the Band welcome the return of Dai Thomas (2nd Cornet) from Parc & Dare and the addition of Steve Barnett (Percussion) from Cwmaman. Steve Barnett is the second Percussion signing is as many months with Alun McNeil-Watson having joined before the Grand Shield. Further changes see Dewi Griffiths (former assistant principal cornet with YBS Band) move from flugel horn to principal cornet, Rhian Linney move to bumper up and Louise Edgar move to Repiano. The signing of these quality players, and internal movements, is latest development in the ongoing improvement of the Band and a further announcement will be made shortly regarding the flugel seat. I would like, on behalf of the Band, to thank both Steve Ruck and Rhian Linney for their cointinued commitment, quality playing, enthusium and professionalism and all at Tredegar look forward to a successful future.
