New Sop signing as Martin Irwin moves across the Pennines

The band are pleased to announce that Soprano Cornet star Martin Irwin has joined the band from Black Dyke.

Martin is one of the most highly regarded cornet players in the business and brings with him a wealth of experience, having had significant success with the Brighouse and Rastrick band and more recently Black Dyke.

Speaking of the appointment, professional conductor Garry Cutt said: “We’ve been looking for some time for a top class player who could offer us the musical experience and quality required at the very highest level and it’s been well worth the wait. Martin is a bandsman who has always given 100% with whichever band he has played for — and his CV is testament to his class.”

The majority of Martin’s banding experience has been in Yorkshire, so signing for Stockport-based Fairey’s is the start of a new musical chapter.
