– Scott Allen (Solo Cornet)
Scott started playing when he was 7 years of age, playing in the St Dennis Junior Band and having private lessons with Linda Trethewey. After a few years he started having lessons with Eddie Williams and also Peter Menear which led to him to join Kernow Brass on 3rd Cornet. As he progressed, he became a member of St Dennis Youth Band, Cornwall Youth Band and then St Dennis Senior Band. Scott also spent some time playing for St Austell and Bugle bands whilst receiving private tuition from the Bands current chairman Rodney Richards.
His highlights include being awarded best Cornet player in Youth section at Bugle contest in 1993 and then winning Bugle contest playing Eric Ball’s Journey into Freedom the following year. This was the last contest before he decided to take a break from playing. Scott returned to playing and the band in 2014 thanks to Colin Whitford’s persuasion.
Like the rest of the band, the 2016 contesting year has been unbelievably successful and one that will be hard to better.
