Amy becomes latest addition to percussion team

Tredegar has announced the signing of Amy Herman - the latest addition to the band’s percussion section.

The talented 18 year old student follows in the footsteps of brother Josh, who joined on trombone last year from City of Cardiff (Melingriffth).

Wanted to make

Amy (left of image next to Ian Porthouse) is currently studying music, IT and forensic science at Pontypridd High School, and said: “I’ve had such a wonderful time playing with City of Cardiff (Melingriffith), but this was the move I wanted to make to further improve and develop as a player.

It’s great to team up with Helydd Gwynant again as we played together for so many years and to join a band that does so many interesting things.”

Percussion plays a vital role in top flight banding nowadays, so to add another talented player such as Amy to Steve Barnett’s team strengthens us again as we approach the busy second half of the contest season - MD, Ian Porthouse

Another great boost

Meanwhile, Tredegar MD, Ian Porthouse added: “This is another great boost for us, and we are delighted to welcome Amy.
