Horns

Flugel Horn


Emily Duke

(Band Secretary)

I currently play Flugelhorn having previously played solo cornet and 2nd cornet.

I have been playing with Pilling Band since I was 10 years old which means I have been playing far too long (21 Years!!)

I also play an active role on the band committee and have been secretary for at least 15years.

I love any pieces from musicals but hate test pieces!!

Outside of band I don’t have time for another hobby but I love spending time with our little girl Ellie and walking our springador Bex.

Solo Horn


Kate Marney


I began playing a cornet at the age of 10 and joined Eccles Borough Band, later playing for Darwen  and Warburton’s Brass Band on cornet, flugel and tenor horn. After taking a break of nearly twenty five years, due to family and work commitments, I began playing again eight years ago. I joined Pilling Band after moving to this area last year and I am thoroughly enjoying playing again with such a bunch of friendly people!

2nd Horn


Joy Watson


I joined Pilling Band at 15yrs old and I have never stopped playing since. I have been a member of other local bands alongside my husband and children. We all enjoyed playing, particularly arrangements of musicals from the theatre. Recently I have returned to Pilling Band and I am thoroughly enjoying my time here.
