Jo Woodman - Repiano Cornet

Jo joined the band aged 6 and was one of quite a large group of children who were taught to play by Brian Chappell in the kitchen at the Baptist Hall in Wotton while the band rehearsed in the main hall.  She has played with the band ever since, spending some years playing soprano and principal before 'retiring' to the back row!

Lucy Seddon - 2nd Cornet

Lucy began playing the cornet when she was a teenager (she won't tell us how long ago that was!!!) when both herself and her Dad had lessons at Frome Band. She had a gap of over 20 years before joining Wotton Band. One of her favourite pieces of music is David of the White Rock.

He comes from a musical family with his two sons, Jon (Flugel) and Alistair Percussionist, plus his daughter in-law, Jo (Repiano Cornet) all being talented musicians. Stuart is also an active member of the band committee. His favourite piece of music is anything by Goff Richards
