2017 All England Masters International Champions
Born in Somerset, far from the banding heartlands, Tristram none the less found himself playing with the local band, and showing some proficiency on the trombone.
After moving to university, Tristram spent some time with Marsden band, before returning home to Somerset for a while.
Having fallen in love with the north (and banding) Tristram returned, and soon went on the search for a band.
Under the then tutorship of John Ward, Tristram joined Milnrow, where he has continued ever since.
Since then, the band has gone from a solid mid table championship level band, to one of the finest in the country, qualifying for the British Open and the Nationals twice........
It is universally agreed that Tristram is one of the very highest class bass trombone players to be found in Milnrow band.
This is suspected to be a coincidence.
