RICH WALKER - trombone

Rich Walker is a committed trombonist and lives in Nottingham amongst his collection of never to be used instruments, mouthpieces, and lightweight gig cases.  


During his musical journey, Rich has been proud to have played with all the major bands in the country either as a dep or a regular member, enjoying many notable tours and concerts. Outside of the Brass Band genre, Rich enjoys many musical styles. A love for chamber music saw him join the award winning Harlequin Brass Ensemble, based in the North of the Country, and also the Essentially Brass Quintet, based in his home city.  


He is demand as a player, raconteur and member of pub quiz teams, noted for his ability to recall the most trivial facts from thin air!


A former student on the Post Graduate Musical Performance Course at the University of Salford, Rich now spends his time arguing with himself about which mouthpiece to use, enjoying fine ales, wines and food and is currently engaged in research to find the perfect Hollandaise Sauce!


By day Rich is a Project Manager for an international Information Services Company and spends most of his day saying 'No'!
