Drumming

Those who dance are seen as crazy by those who do not hear the drums…..”

DRUM’n’DANCE–March 24, 2018
6:30-7:30 Potluck Dinner
7:30-10pm Drumming and Dancing!

Back in the 90’s, Thérèse drummed with two different African-style Drum groups and still has some awesome drumming buddies who love to come to the Groves and fill the Great Room with rousing enlivening rhythms. Welcome the prodigious drumming talents of Simone LaDrumma, Tom Brighton and Micah Harding! We’re going to have a blast (again) and we hope you’ll show up and DANCE like crazy! And/or bring your drum and join in.  We’ll cook up lively rhythms and activate the dancers in the crowd! The evening will unfold in joyous rhythm and movement as we celebrate the onset of spring!

Come prepared to DANCE!!  Other drummers are invited to join us some of the time, but this dynamic drumming group (Tom, Simone, Micah, and Therese) will also want to do some racin’ rhythms on their own.

OTHER DRUMS AT SACRED GROVES …..
The “MOTHER DRUM”

The other kind of drumming that happens here comes to us from the native peoples of this North American continent. This kind of drumming has a group of us standing around a “Mother Drum” (sometimes called a “pow wow drum”) drumming, singing, praying, playing. The Mother Drum that lives at Sacred Groves is “Tree Heart,” is a beautifully crafted massive drum made of cottonwood and elk hide.  Her voice always starts our drumming evenings and finishes the night in a prayerful way.
