Louisbourg fife and drums

There is a fair bit of camera wobble on this clip but I think it's worth watching. Shot from the perspective of being alongside them as they march about these immaculately dressed performers recreating the French of the 1740s are some of the best in the Americas. A lot of colonial fife and drum corps tend to be a little cheesey but not this lot. The drummers lace is a very difficult thing to reproduce these days and you get a nice close-up view of that too.
