Sunday Bandstand 15 August 2021

The Elephant March was written in 1910 as a contest march by James Ord Hume and has been popular from that year to this. It can be heard at many of the annual march contests during the summer months particularly in the UK.

One of the earliest pre-First World War recordings of the march was by Besses O'th' Barn Band.
On this show it is played by Black Dyke Band conducted by James Watson in 2008.

Enjoy the show...
