Dublin Bands

Were your ancestors musicians? St James Brass and Reed Band must be the oldest one in Ireland. The Band was officially founded in 1800 but early records trace this band back as far as 1737. St James won the First Prize at the All-Ireland (Brass) National Exhibition which was held in Dublin in 1882. http://www.stjamessband.com/content.php?page=history
