The Historical Association of Lewiston is pleased to present our March 2019 program: "The Union Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps".  The event will take place at 7:00 PM Thursday, Mar. 28, 2019 at the Lutheran Church of the Messiah Fellowship Hall, 915 Oneida St., Lewiston, NY.

 

Based in Western New York, The Union Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps is a historically authentic musical group specializing in the martial field music of the Civil War. You will thrill to hear the shrill sounds of the fife and the deep rumble of the drum.  Splendidly attired in the uniforms of northern Union musicians and performing on beautiful replica period instruments.  Formed in 2009 by Jim Pace (fife) and Brian Seibel (drum), they are well known amongst Civil War reenactors in the Western New York area. They have also performed for the National Park Service.

 

They are primarily a two member group - one fife and one drum - as was typically utilized at the company level (approx. 100 men) during the Civil War.  Jim Pace is a retired music educator (32 years) and an active professional musician performing on a variety of instruments with various bands and orchestras in the Buffalo, NY area for over 40 years. He is also the town historian for West Seneca.  Brian Seibel is a busy professional freelance percussionist with many decades of experience in Civil War reenacting and musical research.  He is also well versed in Scotch drumming and early American music.  

 

This community event is free and open to all, refreshments will be served.  Come and join us and listen to Civil War period music and learn how it controlled the Union troops in battle.
