One of the defining aspects of the brass band movement is the continuation of traditions. Everything a brass band does, from competitions to caroling, can be traced back to the roots of the brass band movement from the 1830s onwards. The cultural identity of the brass band is made up of individuals who practice traditions that have been passed from generation to generation.
