Wednesday 7 November

His dad Colin painted the five lines of the musical stave on a black board and wrote tunes on it for Paul to learn, starting with a popular film theme of the day, The Dambusters. Colin then went on to found The Sherborne Town Band in 1961, which Paul now conducts in a new a celebratory CD called Jubilee. He tells Frank Renton about the band’s early days, the family connections, which run deep in banding, and the challenges of keeping a town band together today.
