MD : Bill Leith
Bill was born in Aberdeen. He began playing the trumpet while at school, later embarking on an impressive career as an Army bandsman, first with the Gordon Highlanders, and later with the Royal Artillery Mounted Band and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst Band.
Bill joined Callington Town Band, playing solo cornet, after retiring to Cornwall in 2002, and later became Bandmaster and conductor of the Training Band. His musical qualifications and pleasant personality made him an obvious and popular choice as the band`s new MD in 2009. We wish him a long and happy future with the band.



Callington Town Band, December 2013. Musical Director: Bill Leith

Introduction

Dating back at least to 1859, and re-formed in 1996 after a thirty-year break,
Callington Town Band is now well-established in the community.
Experienced players (any ability) are always welcome, either
to join the Band or to drop in for an evening`s music-making.
There they would become part of group which contains men and women
of all ages as well as school age players, but all with one thing
in common - the love of brass band music.
