I am 27 years old from Ayrshire. I am currently a Child Protection Social Worker soon to study Primary Education. With Dalmellington Band in my blood; my parents – Soprano and Flugel; it was predestined that I would play the Cornet under the tutelage of Mr Hugh Johnstone MBE. Progressing through the ranks, I became Principal Cornet of Dalmellington Band, age sixteen, before joining Kirkintilloch Band on Principal Cornet in 2015. In 2017 I joined The Co as the band’s Flugelhorn player. During this time of reform, we have regained our place as Scottish Champions, qualified for The Nationals and Europeans, regained our place in the British Open, and I won “Best Horn” at the Scottish Championships. Living the dream.
