Around 1900,
the newly formed Litchfield Cemetery and Park
Association needed a band to lead processions to and from the
town cemetery on Memorial Day.
The Litchfield Town Band was
born. Urial Crow served as its first director, so the group was
sometimes known as "The Crow Band." Although there were periods
when the band was inactive, it has been a community institution
for more than a century. The group plays a broad repertoire of
standards and marches by John Philip Sousa at Memorial Day and
other commemorations, ice cream socials, and various community
events. Directors have included Urial Crow, Loren Hayes (c. 1915),
Floyd Koons (mid-1920s), Raymond Bradley (1935-1939), Hal Leach (1939-1945),
Kenneth Bradley (1946-2011) and Cynthia Bennett (since 2012).
