Holden Brothers Traveling Circus – Seven Bridges
“The title came from Frank Holden”, Mark says “He is our relation and one of the last of the circus people who had gathered all his monkeys in a farm in Sale. He put his caravan on a man’s property and built an enclosure for all of the monkeys after the circus had stopped. He invited me up and said you have to go seven bridges along to where the farm was and that is where the song came from”.

Holden Brothers Traveling Circus – If I Was Keith Richards

Mark’s great-grandfather Adolphus Holden started the Holden Brothers Family Circus in 1892. The Holden’s, along with the Ashton’s, developed one of the biggest and greatest family circuses in Australia.

In recent years Mark went back to research his family history and resurrect the Holden Brothers Family Circus name.

Mark performed ‘If I Was Keith Richards’ with Dallas Holden, Mick Holden and Simon Hosford.
