Slidin15 13 683x1024Foden's are pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Birch who joined the band prior to their appearance at the National Finals last weekend.

Nick is a former student at Sandbach School and was part of the Sandbach School Big Band, directed by Foden’s John Barber. Nick is currently a Masters student at the RNCM studying Trombone having completed his undergraduate studies at the RNCM on Euphonium.

As a Euphonium player, Nick played with the National Youth Brass Band as well as Solo Euphonium with Pemberton before leaving to join Fairey's Band on 2nd Euphonium.

Nick is also a member of the Slidin’ About Trombone Quartet.

Commenting on his appointment Nick said 'I am really pleased to have joined my hometown band. Particularly as I get to sit next to John Barber, who persuaded me to play the Trombone 10 years ago. I have enjoyed having the 6 months off brass bands but well and truly got the banding bug back since being with Foden's'

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
