Amanda Stewart (trombone)

Amanda started playing the trombone aged ten and has enjoyed a long musical experience in brass bands, orchestras and in recent years the Indigo Big Band. She held the position of principal trombone with a local championship band for over 25 years and performed in many contests including three European Championships, numerous Spring Festivals and a winning performance in Buxton.  Amanda is delighted to take up the position of principal trombone of Downshire as her first band position was as principal of the Reid Memorial Band when she was 15 years old.
