Growing up in a small community, there was always music in the air. In the family and house I grew up in, my Dad played several musical instruments and we all participated in band and or music lessons. I recall going to Esther, Loverna and New Brigden to dances with my parents and there were always local bands playing. The above photo is a group of gentlemen from the Sibbald area in the early 1900's who entertained the folks in the community whenever they got a chance to. I believe Marguerite Wilson's Grandpa is one of the members of this band.
