Brian Osborn
Principal Cornet
Better known as Oz, I have been playing cornet since the age of 7. I started in Onchan Silver Band in 1969 under the teaching of Willie Kneale, and in 1974 also joined the Manx Youth Orchestra, where I held the principal trumpet position for 6 years. (I also met Carolyn, my future wife who played clarinet). I joined Castletown in 1983 when it was under the musical direction of Major J E (Tommy) Thirtle, who had also been a peripatetic brass teacher with the Manx Youth Orchestra. Keeping up the tradition of playing music are my 2 sons, Chris and Graeme, who are members of Ramsey Town Band.
