The next big piece of the 2012 puzzle has been laid. We now know the Order of March for the String Bands for the January 1, 2012 parade. Here it is, courtesy of String Band Association President John Pignotti. If Irish American String Band, which did not march in 2011, comes back into the parade, it will be first, followed by Duffy, then Fralinger, which has drawn another early start. But notice there are some other “power bands” not far behind that and there’s a healthy assortment throughout. Hegeman and Woodland draw the final appearances, coveted by most bands.

Based on this, the chess game of themes and execution now gets more intense. Fun.
