Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Add to the Ranks

Alys Mae Revill is the latest addition to the ranks at Ireland Colliery Chesterfield as the band looks forward to a busy end of the year.

Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band has announced the appointment of Alys Mae Revill as their new solo trombone.

Alys last played for the Newstead Band, but after a short playing break helped Ireland out for a couple of engagements and was tempted into joining.

MD Lindon Bolt told 4BR: “Alys is a fabulous player and brings a touch of class to the top of our already strong trombone section.

I’m delighted she has joined, and along with the other players we have attracted recently gives us great momentum with a busy concert and contest period ahead.”

Alys joins other recent signings, Clare Gregory, Alex Cummings and Tabitha McAlpine on cornet, along with Bob McEwan on Bb Bass and Matt Keeling on percussion.
