ABOUT CAMBRIA BAND
How We Got Our Start
Cambria Band was formed after a challenge was laid down to Band Leader Adam Phillips.
As an amateur historian he was part of a group that organised the annual Liberation of Hope parade, at this event in 2006 he was challenged to form a Marching band that could perform at events like this and for the benefit of the local community.
More than ten years later the band still follows the ethos of providing a band for those who need it, providing its members with tuition, equipment and uniform without charge and taking free music tuition out into the community.
Cambria Band started like the musical version of the A Team and would play for those who needed them. This started at 10 events a year and quickly grew to 60+ events, thus making us one of the busiest marching bands in the World.
The repertoire is made up of traditional Welsh tunes and the commands are given in Cymraeg. The uniform is a Welsh tartan made from Welsh wool in Mid Wales.
Our motto is Gorymdeithio Dros Gymru which translates literally as Marching Over Wales, which we do mile by parade mile. It also in essence means Marching For Wales as we are active in the promotion of Welsh history culture and welfare.
We are proud to say that there are many St David’s day events, carnivals, fetes, charity events and historical days that have had Cambria Band as a part of their founding.
