“A way of life as much as a way of music, the marching bands of Perth, Ontario have reflected the times of their town from the days before Confederation, making them one of the longest continuous musical presences in the country. In Sound the Trumpet, historian Daphne Overhill brings to life a rich pageant of band and local history. From the days of temperance through the real story of the original Music Man up to the new millennium, the Perth bands have interwoven their history with their community and maintained a musical tradition as important to the 21st century as to the 19th.”

Winner of the Ontario Heritage Trust Award in 2006.
