Commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums with this two-disc set. Released in spring 2008, the stirring 60-minute documentary-for-broadcast DVD Drummers Call: America's Fife & Drum Tradition chronicles the patriotic story of fifes and drums from the 18th century to the present day and includes performances at the 2007 Deep River Ancient Muster and in Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area. Thirty bonus minutes include rare photos and footage of the fifers and drummers and interviews with members of Colonial Williamsburg's Fifes and Drums from across the decades.
Carefully moved from archived original reel-to-reel tapes to digital recordings, the audio CD Half Century of Quarter Notes features music of the Fifes and Drums from the last 50 years. Especially noteworthy are two tracks recorded by alumni who attended "Drummers Call" in May 2007.
