Community band calls for members

A new community band called Mountain Winds is forming in Jackson County, led by Bob Buckner, outgoing director of athletic bands at Western Carolina University and Jon Henson, assistant director of the school’s Pride of the Mountains Marching Band.

Musicians who played in high school or college bands are invited to join.

Henson said he decided to organize the band in response to interest from community members who share a love of music, want to develop their musical skills, and enjoy the camaraderie and experience of performing as a group.
