Sunday Bandstand 13 December 2015

This week's photograph is Cornishman Fred Roberts who was the principal cornet at Brighouse and Rastrick for 17 years and gave cornet lessons to a young lad called Derek Garside... Fred was invited to be the bandmaster at the newly formed CWS (Manchester) Band in 1947 (working with the band's new professional conductor Eric Ball) where he was joined by his protege Derek Garside. Fred eventually returned to Cornwall where he conducted a number of prominent bands in the area.
