Just wanted to remind everyone of the Fife and Drum jam aboard the world's first nuclear-powered merchant ship, NS SAVANNAH (half-passenger, half-cargo) just north of the Fort McHenry Tunnel on I-95, at 4601 Newgate ave, Pier 13, Baltimore, 21224 Sunday, May 21st, 2017, from 10-3 rain-or-shine. Free event, free parking, free tours of the SAVANNAH and other visiting vessels. Please be so kind as to post this announcement to your favorite message boards. The event is being held in conjunction with the 2017 National Maritime Day observance.

They didn't have a teacher!

Note: The Tutorial on the Fife is designed for students using a Conventional, Bb 6-hole Fife as used by most reenactors and fife and drum corps in the United States. If you intend to learn on a gift shop Bb Maple Fife, DO NOT order the tutorial. Many of these fifes are most difficult to sound on, even by the most skilled musician, right out of the box. The Bb Plastic Student Fifes are fine as a learner's instrument and are available from Be A Fifer and elsewhere.
Nor can I help with the Yamaha plastic fife which requires fingerings more like a recorder.
