New Signings at Black Dyke Band

Black Dyke are delighted to welcome Jon Hammond on assistant principal cornet and Adam Finch on 3rd Cornet.  


“It is an honour and a privilege to be appointed Assistant Principal Cornet of the world famous Black Dyke Band, it has been a lifelong goal of mine to be a part of this amazing band and to do this and be sat between my Brother, Tim and Richard Marshall makes it even more special. I am really looking forward to working with Professor Childs and this magnificent band.  I would like to thank David Roberts and Rothwell Band for their support and friendship over the last 18 years” Jon Hammond

Adam Finch is a Post graduate student at Salford University, and has been a regular deputy in the cornet section over the past year, and was an obvious choice for the cornet section when a vacancy became available.  Richard Marshall commented “For the last few years I have taught Adam at the University of Salford and I have been impressed with his commitment and attitude. I personally wish both Jon and Adam many happy years with the band”.


Both Jon and Adam’s first concert will be at Sheffield Citadel on Thursday 19th October.
