I have just returned to my winter headquarters in Orlando, Florida after a great weekend in the beautiful town of Lafayette, Indiana on the shores of the historic Wabash river. I was an instructor and performer at a really cool (well, really COLD) fife and drum event aptly called the "Freezer Jam". The event featured a dozen fife and drum corps from various states throughout the central U.S. First a few words about American fife and drum music in general and then this particular event.
Skip will be teaching and lecturing at the 2008 Freezer Jam held in Lafayette, In. He will also be performing a short concert of traditional Irish and American fife music with multi instrumentalist Joshua Dukes. More information to come soon!
October 4,5,6 2013 in the Greenwich Odeum -- "Wind On The Bay" provides an atmosphere where players, makers, teachers, and students of traditional music can get together to learn, share, and socialize in a relaxed and comfortable setting.
