CARHARRACK AND ST DAY SILVER BAND

 

ABOUT THE BAND

The villages of Carharrack and St. Day lie six miles southwest of Truro. There has been a brass band connected with these two villages since 1912.

Initially brass players were predominately male, however, over the years this has changed and today Carharrack & St. Day Silver Band has 12 female players and 8 bandsmen. Practice takes place on Wednesday and Friday evenings under the direction of Roy Trelease, the 17th (and longest-standing) musical director of the band.

The villages lie at the heart of what was once a thriving mining industry, with some of the first practices taking place in the outbuildings of Ting Tang Mine. To this day remnants of this industry can still be seen in the abundance of mine buildings in the area.

The music that Carharrack & St. Day Silver Band play demonstrates the fun and light heartiness of this youthful group of musicians.
