The Rudimental Drummers Club of New England (RDCNE), a U.S.A.R.D. chapter performs some popular fife and drum jam pieces as well as some original compositions for the genre.
Special kudos goes out to the individuals of this group who in preparing for this show traveled far and long to learn new drum pieces of an unfamiliar style. Dave Hevrin many times drove about 150 mile round trip to and from my home to learn the new material. Gary Gillotti, as well, with an almost 3 hour trip – one-way! Ginger Wilk learned the new for her fife tunes that the drums accompanied.
The last two pieces of this set were dedicated to our recently deceased friend and USARD member, Warren Lee.
