Congratulations Desi Graham!

A massive congratulations to Desi Graham on receiving an Order of the British Empire Medal (BEM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2020. Desi has been a player/conductor/supporter of Third Carrickfergus Silver Band for many years and through that has helped to inspire many generations of musicians.

At least two members of our current Executive Committee have been lucky enough to have been mentored by Desi throughout their time playing in bands and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Desi for all his help over the years.

So Desi – on behalf of everyone in brass bands you’ve helped – thank you!
