Long Melford Silver Band

We are a friendly local brass band based in Long Melford, we play concerts and village fetes around the area, we can play almost anywhere in south Suffolk or north Essex including Clare, Cavendish, Ridgewell, Halstead, Glemsford, Sudbury and further afield .

We play a varied selection of music from the traditional brass band marches to more modern pop songs and film music.

We (Clare Community Association) have added this entry as there is a strong connection with Clare (just in case anybody was wondering !)
