Civil War Fife, Drum and Brass Band!

     A former member of the Black Watch and founder of the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drum, I have known Major George Carroll for most of my lifetime. A maker of fine rope-tension drums, George has instructed many drummers over the years, including those at the Fort Delaware Civil War Musician's School.
     George has produced a compact disk with a fine collection of fife and drum selections from
Bruce and Emmett along with authentic performances of Civil War brass band music. It is all played on period instruments by The International Association of Field Musicians and the Heritage Brass.
