Heads up | Fife and drums Tuesday

Fifes and drums Tuesday

The Plymouth Fife and Drum Corps will perform 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Rock Hill City Hall.

The corps is made up of youth ages 12-18 who perform between 40 and 50 times each season.

They dress in replicas of the Continental uniform of George Washington's personal lifeguard, with white wool breeches, a waistcoat and blue wool Continental coat trimmed in red.

The corps has appeared in hundreds of ceremonies, parades and festivals throughout the Midwest, New England and Canada since its inception in 1971, including the re-opening of the Statue of Liberty in 2004.

The corps also performed at the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution in Philadelphia.
