Linda Graham - Principal Cornet
Linda basically fell into playing the cornet at the age of 15. Apart from a few scrappy lessons at school she's self-taught and has developed her playing to a high standard. She's played at all levels from youth through to championship section, winning the areas and performing at the national finals on numerous occasions. She has performed in many countries, the most recent being Belgium and is very proud to have played at the Menin Gate in 2016. Linda takes her banding very seriously and has a 'work hard, play hard' attitude to life. She is always happy to help other bands and enjoys the 'odd' bit of conducting (odd being the operative word as she's cack handed!). Linda has recently taken on the role of Principal Cornet at Ripon City and is very proud to be a key member of such a fantastic team.
