On New Years’ Day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, there’s a tradition called the Mummers Parade.  Large costumed ensembles march down the street, playing music.  Tomorrow’s parade is the 111th; appropriate for the day 1/1/11!  The Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper reports on the music that will be used.  One group will costume as Polish pirates.  The Woodland group is using the theme “New Orleans Bayou.”  They are using Dixieland jazz and zydeco music!  If we can have Motor Dude special on the ukulele, why not?
