|The New York Ancients
Fife & Drum Corps
The New York Ancients Fife and Drum Corps was organized in 1976 in the
bicentennial year of our nation's founding. It's membership was drawn from
well known organizations in the New York area such as the Chippewa Fife &
Drum Corps and the New York Regimental Fife and Drum Band. During the
past third of a century we have grown and spread out to include fifers and
drummers from Connecticut to Florida and from the East Coast to as far
west as Arizona. During that period we have participated in numerous
patriotic and civic events as well as parades, musters and competitions.
Our aim is to help perpetuate the early American martial and folk music
reminiscent of the spirit which led to our nation's founding.
If you are interested in having the New York Ancients perform
