Born in Bolton in 1978 Karl has played principal cornet for Walkden Brass Band for over 10 years and has also played for Timperley and Glossop brass bands.
Karls experience is diverse having also played in a German umpah band called The Brasshoppers run by Colin Angell for 10 years. Colin and Karl are related (father & son) and continue to play together to this day as Colin is also a member of Black & Gold.
Influenced by all kinds of music from jazz, classical to indie rock ska soul. Karl loves playing in this band because its something hes been itching to do for years but never had the chance until now.
Karl with his father form an integral part of the band and they work very closely with both our saxophone players to produce an outstanding four piece brass section.
