  1. Great stuff! Dialect poet and song writer Robert Anderson played flute in the Volunteer band in Carlisle in very early years of the nineteenth century, and later in the century Carlisle fiddler and ballad singer/seller Jimmy Dyer wrote and published a broadside ballad about the Volunteer Review on the banks of the River Eden in Carlisle.
