The Fifes and Drums of York Town Performance
Jul 19 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
The Fifes and Drums of York Town Performance @ Tryon Palace | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

On Friday, July 19, The Fifes and Drums of York Town will be performing on the Tryon Palace grounds. At 11:30 a.m., The Fifes and Drums of York Town will begin their march down the Grand Allée to the Tryon Palace South Lawn for their performance.

The Fifes and Drums of York Town was formed for the American Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. Today they continue their mission to recruit youth between the age of 10 and 18 and train them in the rudiments and drill of 18th Century field music.

A typical performance season consists of approximately 80 shows, many of which are conducted for the National Park Service and York County, as well as various historic venues along our Eastern seaboard including Mount Vernon, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Valley Forge Pennsylvania, West Point, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts.

Our members dress in period uniforms. The goal of all members is to promote into the Senior Corps and wear the red regimental uniform reminiscent of the uniform worn by 18th century musicians who served in the Continental Army in Yorktown, Virginia…where Freedom was Won!

Attend this presentation to learn about perennials that thrive in eastern North Carolina’s challenging climate, with a focus on varieties that support birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

In addition to recommended varieties, the presentation will also discuss how to select the right plants for growing conditions in your yard, designing plantings for maximum benefit to pollinators, and share tips for establishing and caring for perennials so they will thrive for years to come.

An eastern North Carolina native, Charlotte has studied horticulture and gardened in the North Carolina coastal plain and piedmont, Scotland and New Zealand. She is an avid gardener with a keen interest in native plants, sustainable landscaping, and garden ecology.
