The village of Marsden in West Yorkshire hosts numerous festivals throughout the year. Perhaps the most widely known is the annually held and award winning Jazz Festival. The 'Marsden Festival Suite' was inspired in part by the diverse venues used during the festival, ranging from the quirky 'Crumbals on the Corner' to the imposing 'Mechanics Institute'. The kit part, whilst optional, is preferable. The PDF also contains parts for violin III, doubling that of the viola and double bass. Click here to listen to a recording of the piece.
