Kenny first joined the band (at that time known as Stoneywood band) in 1973 under the baton of Eddie Paley. In 1976 he went to study at the Guildhall School of Music in London with Peter Gane, Denis Wick and occasionally Steve Saunders as his teachers.
After 18 years of playing Bass Trombone with all and sundry a change of career was on the cards. Kenny moved to America to study Chiropractic and, to make a longish story about the same length, now has his own clinic in the sunny climes of Turriff where he lives with his wife, Debi, and two cats, Hank and Levi.
Kenny rejoined Granite City Brass in 2009 and enjoys many evening rehearsals where he excels in making the Euphonium players ears bleed.
Pauline began learning trombone at the age of 11 under the tuition of Eddie Paley. After a brief spell with Aberdeen City Band she joined
Granite City Brass (known at that time as UDI Brass) in 1988. She played in many contests and concerts over the years before taking a break for work and family reasons, including a spell living in Paris. Now that her children are older Pauline has rejoined Granite City Brass and is delighted to have taken her trombone out of retirement.
