The Salem Trayned Band will demonstrate c. 1630 English pike drill and seventeenth-century camp life at the National Park Service’s Salem Maritime Festival on Saturday 6 August 2016 in Salem, Massachusetts. (The Festival is back to being a full-weekend event, but regrettably we can only be there on the Saturday this year.) Look for a photo of Paul and Andy that the NPS has put on the event page. And this year, we’ll be there as our seventeenth-century selves, rather than masquerading in another period (as we did the year before last–1812, anyone?). But our friends The Commonwealth Vintage Dancers may be there portraying 1812, dancing in Federal (or, if you’re British or very Anglophilic, Regency) style. We look forward to seeing all of our friends and fans at our tent by Derby Wharf.
