Many in the North Country are familiar with the Norwood Brass Firemen. This musical group has an extremely long and interesting history. Many communities had brass bands in earlier years, but the Norwood Brass Firemen is one of the few still existing to the present day. This presentation will include information about the band’s beginnings and interesting aspects of its history over the years.
