We start arriving at dusk, setting out lawn chairs and blankets in front of the bandstand. We may hear the Temple Town Band perform in any number of small New England towns, but we’ve come here because their music is one summer sound that binds the generations. The first Temple Town Band was founded in 1799, and so this incarnation carries on as America’s oldest community musical group. Selections vary from one concert to another, as does even the number of performers — sometimes 30, sometimes nearly twice that — but what you hear is the essence of belonging to a town and a past.
