Bumper-Up Solo Cornet
John joined recently after a period away from formal banding. He played a bit of jazz horn (trumpet) in recent decades with gospel and informal combos at weddings, services and just jamming.
Before that he played Solo Horn with the Kirkintilloch Silver Band and Cumbernauld Silver Band. He also played Principal Horn and led the Brass Section in the Dumbartonshire County School Orchestra in the 1970's.
By day he teaches Video Game development and enterprise at West Scotland University.
