SHIPSTON TOWN BANDS

Shipston-on-Stour

Town Band

A Milestone For Shipston Cornet Player

    Over the years bands witness the passing through of many promising young musicians and that sadly is all many of them do, so it’s a cause for celebration when one of those young people stick around for a while.

    John Smith is seen here accepting a timepiece quite aptly presented to mark his 60 years in brass banding. John started playing under the direction of his father, the Band’s former conductor and now as Principal Cornet is still in harness - well done John.
