Connecticut Valley field music - traditional music for fifes and drums

Connecticut Valley Field Music is a fife and drum band of approximately fifteen playing members. We play rope-tension snare and bass drums and wooden fifes. The group’s uniform is based on the musician’s uniform of the U.S. Army, ca. 1862. For over twenty years the members of the Connecticut Valley Field Music have been developing possibilities in the genre of traditional music for fifes and drums. In 1988 with the urging of friend Dave Pear, John Kalinowski attended a pre-CT Valley Field Music social group gathering at the home of Jim Clark. The group consisted of two fifers and four snare drummers. In the following year, they marched their first parade at the Westbrook Muster. That was the official start of Connecticut Valley Field Music.
