SOUTH and MID WALES
FELLOWSHIP BAND

Ken Batt

Euphonium Bb


Ken attends the Skewen Temple Corps where he is the Bandmaster (39+ years service) and the "acting" Songster Leader. He is also the Corps mini-bus driver.

He is a retired Personnel Officer, married to Margaret. They have a son and daughter and three grand children.

Ken's Favourite band piece is "Departure." by Mendelssohn arr Eric Ball.

His proudest moment was becoming the YP Band Leader at the age of 19 at the inception of a new YP Band comprised mainly of "non-Army background" young people.

Ken says " I continued to be Band-leader  for many years after becoming Bandmaster, and last but not least, I'm still in touch with many of those band members (some of whom are Salvationists/Church goers in various Corps and Churches through-out the UK) despite none of them being in the Corps today!
