Quoting from the Internet source given below:
The New Scorpion Band was formed in 1993. The name is taken from the original Scorpion Band, a quartet who performed with clarinet, trombone, cornopean and bass drum in the Dorchester area during the years around 1830. The New Scorpion Band was created by the distinguished Dorset folk singer Tim Laycock, who has devoted a lifetime to the music and traditions of the South West of England. The members of the band bring together a wide experience of many different styles of music - the English, Scots and Irish traditions, early, baroque and classical music, opera, jazz, brass bands and theatre, television and film music.
