Fans of Canadian music will be in for a treat this August, as a Canadian community band performs in Falmouth - and it's free.


Delta Music Makers will be holding a concert at the Princess Pavilions, located in Gyllyvase Terrace On Saturday, August 13 at 2 pm.

To celebrate the end of lockdown, the band wants to celebrate the summer and share their love of music with their English and Cornish friends.

Throughout the concert, guests can experience an afternoon of band music, marches, Broadway, and light and classical original Canadian, which some have never heard before in England.

For more than 35 years, Delta Music Makers has played all over the lower mainland of British Columbia, mainly in the southern suburb of Delta, focussing on senior residences, outdoor summer concerts, concert hall Christmas and Remembrance tributes.
