Welcome to Maddy

The band would like to welcome Maddy Bramley to the front bench cornet section. She brings with her a wealth of banding experience and has quickly become part of our band family, in her own words:

I started playing cornet at the age of 12 in Worsbrough Brass band with my dad and brother.  Less than a year after joining, we won the Yorkshire 4th section area, and continued playing with the band for a while.

Seven years ago, I joined Barnsley Brass with my parents and brother, who are still members of the band.

When I moved to Hull for university, I joined Beverley Brass band, then had a North of England 3rd section win with Barton Community band the following year.

Last year when I returned from a year abroad, I joined Barnsley Brass once again to win the Yorkshire 3rd section area and, six months later, we became National 3rd section champions!

I have now moved to Hull permanently, and East Riding of Yorkshire band have been friendly and welcoming, so I’m looking forward to my future here!
