Edward had his first taste of brass music in primary school, where he began learning the cornet during lunch-breaks. Over the years, he has played both cornet and trumpet in a variety of groups, ranging from school junior orchestras to university funk bands (namely, the wonderfully-titled Colonel Spanky’s Love Ensemble). He particularly enjoys Gilbert and Sullivan productions, having played with both Cambridge and Exeter University’s G&S Societies; one particular highlight was performing at the open-air Minack Theatre, Cornwall, over a four-night run, while simultaneously contending with some rather nasty winds that conspired to cool down even the most lovingly-cradled of trumpets.

Edward is currently a postgraduate research student at the University of Exeter, where his research investigates the French-language literature and culture of medieval England. The Railway Band is his first foray into brass-banding, and he’s very much looking forward to contributing to the in contests, concerts and carol services alike.
