Jack Lythaby

Jack hails from Lydbrook in the Royal Forest of Dean and began his musical career at the age of10.  He soon joined Lydbrook Training Band and rose through the ranks to join their Championship section Senior band, becoming Solo Horn at the age of 16.

Throughout his time at Lydbrook, Jack was also a member of both the National Children’s and National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, at the latter he progressed onto the Solo Horn bench.  He also travelled the length of the country competing in solo contests, and in 2017 was awarded the ‘Most Outstanding Horn’ prize at the Foden’s Band Solo Competition.

Jack joined Tredegar band in the Spring of 2018 and has enjoyed multiple high-profile concerts both at home and abroad; the highlight of which was the 2022 BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, giving the world premiere of Gavin Higgins’ award-winning Concerto Grosso for Brass Band and Orchestra.

Also in 2022, Jack graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where he studied under the tutelage of Tenor Horn virtuoso Owen Farr, with a first-class honours degree.  Alongside this, he also won the College’s Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Prize and June Emerson Launchpad Prize with his quartet, Vulcan Brass.
