Those who watched Who Do You Think You Are? last night on BBC2 will have seen Lesley Garrett discover her musical roots from her family tree. Her family were miners from the Doncaster area, and there was a scene where she was at a rehearsal with the Dinnington Brass Band, looking at how music was an important part of the pit workers' lives. So.... How far back in your tree do you have to go to find the find the first occurance of a brass band playing family member? For me, it is only one generation back to my Mum and my Auntie (as far as I am aware).
