has played ‘on the street and on the green’ every year since it was founded. Tradition is born out of longevity, anticipation, and enjoyment and the tradition of the Salisbury Band encompasses all of these traits and more. The Salisbury Band, located in Litchfield County, Connecticut (where I went to high school and am a member of the Bar Association !) is open to all players of all ages from all areas. It is an exceptional opportunity for young aspiring musicians to sharpen their skills as well as for ‘mature’ players who have not played for a number of years to rediscover those skills. Practice is held at the Salisbury Library and schedules vary based upon season.
