The Lindley Band is very pleased to announce the appointment of the well renowned cornet soloist James McCabe as Musical Director. A former Principal Cornet with the Fairey and Rothwell Temperance Bands, and Assistant/Co-Principal at Black Dyke Band, James will take up his post with Lindley after the Yorkshire Area. This allows him to fulfil his playing commitments in this contest with The Rothwell Temperance Band. James is looking forward to working with the band on a variety of exciting projects.
For the 2017 Area the band has secured the valuable services of Neil Jowett in the MD role who brings a plethora of experience to this position. Making a welcome return to the playing ranks are Paul Harrison and Robert Sykes on back row cornet and Martin Gledhill on baritone.
