Band Member Profile

Briony Watkinson

Clarinet. Joined October 2016

 

 

 

I started playing the clarinet at school when I was 11 and enjoyed playing in various school groups.

After moving to the area, family and other commitments took priority, and the clarinet remained in the case.

I recently decided I wanted to imrprove my playing and join a band, so I dug out my daughter's instrument (better than mine!) and started to practise again.

In the meantime, I developed an interest in playing the recorder. I am a member of the Durham branch of the Society of recorder Players and also meet regulary with friends to play a broad range of music from the Renaissance to the 21st century.

I also sing in our church music group. This is the first time I have played in a band of this type.

I try to keep fit by running and swimming. I love being outside and together with my husband, enjoy exploring hidden parts of Yorkshire.

I don't like chocolate, wasps and wearing skirts. I love brightly coloured trousers, pencils and managing our 'random' cottage garden.
