The Towpath Volunteers Fife & Drum Corps

The Towpath Volunteers Fife & Drum Corps
The Towpath Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps has preached and practiced the Excellence in fifing and drumming for many years. It has helped improve the musical ability of many of our young musicians had they not become part of our family. Many other area musical groups have and continue to recruit our members to bolster their ranks. After all, it's far easier to have someone join your group that is musically excellent and already has marching skills. So the Towpath Volunteers pretty much keep its distance from other area groups, until now. We have "sistered" up with the Renegade Fyfe and Drum Corps that practices in Palmyra, NY. Working with them has been fun and beneficial to both groups.

The Renegade Fyfe and Drum Corps
So why would a successful fife and drum corps sister up with an up and coming fyfe and drum corps from another town. Because we can!! It started out as a group in need of some drums for a pirate themed party fyfe and drum corps. A much different premise than the Towpath Volunteers. So we were happy to loan drums to them. As the friendship and professional side grew closer together, we were able to share our love of music and members who wanted to march with both groups. This was able to be done as we work closely together and don't book parades at the same time.

So see, the Renegades, while they have the ability to be very fine musicians, are all about pleasing the crowd and on a schedule that isn't too busy. They actually get out of line and go up to the crowd and talk to them. Heck, they even pass out "pieces from Captain Jack Morgan's Treasures" to the crowd. I've been in Towpath since day one and I love the respect that is given for superior musicianship and crisp marching skills that the Towpath Volunteers demonstrate every parade, but now, I can see letting your hair down and just having fun too!

Where will this budding friendship between fife and drums corps go? I am not sure but I do salute the Renegades for what they do and I respect them for their efforts to help the Towpath Volunteers!
