Catherine Hannaway - 2nd Trombone

Catherine began playing the trumpet at aged 7 and progressed to the cornet then trombone. She was a founder member of the Harrogate Band, where she played for many years whilst her father was the Chairman. On setting up home in Ripon in 2001 she joined the Ripon City Band. At some point all 3 of her children have played in Ripon City Band too. Over a number of years she has been a committee member. Catherine’s work includes extensive national and overseas travel, which can mean commitment to band rehearsals and engagements is a struggle…but she tries!
