New Rep at Grimethorpe
Grimethorpe Colliery Band are delighted to announce the signing of Seb Williman as its new Repiano Cornet. Currently a student at the Royal Northern College of Music, Seb is taught by two former Principal Cornets of Grimethorpe; Richard Marshall and Roger Webster. Seb has also previously held the Assistant Principal Cornet seat at Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band, and most recently Repiano seat at Fairey Band.
Commenting on his new venture Seb stated, “I’m delighted to be joining a band that has such a wealth of heritage and history behind it. I’m looking forward to starting with David Thornton and the band soon! I would like to thank Fairey Band for the experiences I’ve had with them over the last 12 months, and I wish them the best in the future”
M.D. David Thornton is thrilled with the new signing commenting, “I’m delighted to once again add to the youthful ranks of the band. Seb is a great character and a dedicated bandsman, as well as clearly having a fantastic musical future ahead of him.”
The appointment of Seb follows the departure of Stephanie Wilkins to Black Dyke, whom the band wish all the best in her new role.
