Carnival Music

Lairds of Dixieland

Leading the Carnival and announcing its approach to the waiting crowds was the Lairds of Dixieland Parade Band with their foot tapping traditional jazz.

Drumming up a rhythm were some local youths from Stix Percussion drum school.

Whitehaven Brass Band

No Carnival in a mining town could be complete without the familiar tones of a brass band and Whitehaven Brass Band excelled in the role.
