Fife and drums in the UK
Something that is needed in the UK is more fife and drums in the 18th century reenactment scene - after all it is pretty important (providing the jaunty soundtrack to the miseries of the battlefield) - be good to see more fife and drums in any case. I am sure the Lexington Minute company would be interested in hearing from you if you fancy fifing and drumming.
