After being with the Blues for several years, returned to my roots back in Deep River with the Senior Ancients. Have recently moved to the Concord, NH area, and although keeping my affiliation with the Deep River Seniors and will, of course, march with them when given the opportunity, am looking for other fife and drum contacts in this area. Would like to attend some practices and "keep my chops up" so that I don't whimp out in the summer jams I'm looking forward to so much!!!

Lancraft Ancient Fife and Drum Corps
North Haven,CT.
Past_Corps: Yalesville Junior Fife and Drum Corps Other: I started as a fifer with Yalesville Jrs. at age 8 under the instruction of Eleanor Borek. Ileft the corps in 1983. I swore I was all done with the drum corps world and wouldn't join another group until Lancraft let women in their ranks.My father, Jack DeLancey joined Lancraft in 1983 as a fifer and is the one who is responsible for my interest in drum corps. In November of 1997, I got the phone call that I never thought I would receive. Lancraft had voted to let women join their corps. I affectionately referred to Lancraft as "The he-man woman haters club" and couldn't believe what I was hearing. I've been going to practice faithfully every Thursday since then and was voted in unanimously in April of 1998. I am very fond of all my fellow members and am so impressed with their comraderie with each other and all ancient musicians.

Tom Kuhn - Fifer and Chief Musician,
The Camp Chase Fifes & Drums, a central Ohio-based, authentic Civil War-period fife and drum corps organized in 1983. Members are from all over Ohio. The group performs at many historical sites, reenactments and living history events around the country. In 1998, it performed at the Ohio Village in Columbus, Ohio (twice); Wheeling, WVa.135 Anniversary Celebration of the State of West Virginia; the 135th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg Reenactment; Lookout Mountain National Military Park and the Tennessee Civil War Museum Grand Opening in Chattanooga, TN.; the Fifth Annual Civil War Field Music Muster at the Gettysburg National Military Park; the Somerset, Ohio battle reenactment; and Battle of Mills Springs, KY. reenactment to name a few. The group has led the way in authentic field music in the Civil War reenactment community since the early 1980's. In 1985, it represented the State of Ohio at the Presidential Inaugural Parade. It was the principal Union field music unit throughout the grand reenactments commemorating the 125th Anniversary of the American Civil War (1986-1990). Since 1990, the group has performed at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.; the Longspeak Scottish/Irish Festival at Estes Park, CO.; Greenfield Village at Dearborn, MI; and at Fort Niagara, NY. In 1992, the group was contracted with the 2nd Maryland Fifes & Drums to perform in the motion picture Gettysburg, and can be seen and heard throughout the film. It is also heard on the soundtrack More Songs and Music from Gettysburg on Milan Records. Members of the group have appeared in other TV and motion picture productions including North & South Part II, Glory, Dances With Wolves, and George Washington. The Camp Chase Fifes & Drums is a regular feature at the annual Gettysburg Civil War Music Muster hosted by the National Park Service each Labor Day weekend. Camp Chase currently has two recordings available on cassette and CD. For more information, please contact Tom Kuhn at

Pattie Unan - Fifer,
Deep River Drum Corps
Deep River, CT
Past_Corps: 1974- Deep River Tories; promoted to the Deep River Juniors the same year. Stayed with the DRJA until 1978 when I marched with the River Valley Colonials (a short lived corps formed by about a dozen former members or the Junior Colonials of Westbrook and the DRJA) for 1 season. I joined the Deep River [Senior] Drum Corps in 1980 before going into the US Air Force. After two terms in the Air Force, I rejoined the DRDC in 1990 and have held at least one office every year since.
Other: I would have joined fife and drum earlier but had to wait until I was 12. Luckily for me, my dad was a former member of the DRDC and had an old metal fife so I learned a little by ear before starting lessons with Vic Malcarne in 1974. Vic had a profound influence on my dedication to the DRDC and the Deep River Ancient Muster

Gerard Wauldron
I am currently Lead Instructor and Director of Tittabawassee F&DC, I helped organized the group in 1986 after the a performance of a pretend recreation of a F&DC (piccolos and marching snares) performed. My love for fife and drum started in 1st Mich Col. FDC (1981) at the age of 12 and lead me to continue to later instruct the drumline in Plymouth F&DC (1986), and perform periodically with Great Lakes Ancients (1984 to current), and instruct, arrange, manage,and create performance routines and concerts for the Tittabawasse F&DC (1986 to current).
