The Mill Creek Colliery Band is a traditional British-style brass band based in Edmonton. The band consists of an enthusiastic group of local professional and amateur musicians dedicated to promoting excellence in brass banding throughout western Canada. British-style brass bands consist of only brass instruments and percussion. (Unlike British-style fish and chips there is no newspaper wrapping). They have a history in the UK going back to the early 1800’s and are often affiliated with industry sponsors – especially miners. In this tradition The Edmonton group has named itself after the collieries (coal mines) that were found along the river valley area in Edmonton in the early days.
We’re hoping to see lots of the community, our friends and family there. You’ll need to come in through the main entrance and wait in line unless, of course, “you’re with the band”.
