A big Congratulations to Kieran Brown who won the B Bandsman of the year trophy. Kieran is the B Bands Solo Euphonium player who has gone from strength to strength this year playing solo items at concerts. Kieran has recently been enjoying being part of the senior band team for the past few months which has also improved his playing through more technical pieces. Graham Buckley presented him with the JKR ex pats trophy at the combined Senior and B band Christmas Concert at Shirebrook Miners Welfare. Well done Kieran. The band are so proud of you!
