Currently the Repiano Cornet player of the Black Dyke Band, Adam has played with Championship brass bands for the past six years. He has previously played on the solo Cornet bench with both the Fairey and Hepworth Brass Bands. You could say bands are part of his DNA as Adam hails from Saddleworth, right in the heart of Brass Band country, where he started his playing career with the Diggle ‘B’ Band.
Touring, and playing around the world have long been part of Adam’s musical life. With Black Dyke he has toured Europe and japan, and he also plays Trumpet for internationally acclaimed singer Paul Pashley’s Band, regularly touring Europe and the UK and performing in high class events and concerts.
Adam is currently in his third year studying Trumpet under Tracey Redfern at the Royal Northern College of Music as a Stoller Scholar. After graduating he would like to work in Musical Theatre as a Musical Director. He really enjoys his time with the band and gets a real buzz from the atmosphere generated by the band’s group pf world-class players.
He has received many plaudits in his relatively short career, some of which are below.
