Leeds Local Customs: 10 reviews and 21 photos
Yorkshiremen have a habit of commenting that 'where there's muck, there's brass', referring to the mining and industrial activities which were the source of the county's wealth in the 19th century. But brass also refers to the county's world famous bands - Grimethorpe Colliery Band, especially - which have since travelled the world, winning competitions and delighting audiences with their unique brand of big band music.
