brass band

The evocative strains of a brass band can always be guaranteed to draw a crowd. The pomp, spectacle, and rousing tunes serve to tug gently at the heart strings of most northern folk. Despite the demise of the mining & textile industries, many bands are still in existence. A village fete would not be complete without a stirring soundtrack provided by the local brass band.
