Parrsboro Citizens' Band

The Parrsboro Citizens' Band was one of the oldest, continously performing community bands in the country. With a recorded, pardon the pun, history going back to 1877 it performed in the community for various community events such as Canada Day and presented several concerts a year. As the numbers finally fell below sustainable levels for performances, the focus of the musical activities at The Hall shifted to smaller, combo type groups, combined with lessons.

Three groups are now sustaining the tradition of community based music at The Hall. There is a group which meets to learn and play improvisation style jazz and blues based music, a large group who are learning guitar techniques (a group which also features mandolins in its number) and the community based Parrsboro Citizens' Choir.
