Rhythm circle at Canalside – open to members and non-members

August 30, 2011 by General Administrator

These last couple of months have seen the piloting of a new rhythm circle at Canalside, and we now feel ready and excited to open it up to anyone else who might be interested in coming along. That’s you… and anyone else you think could be up for it!

Picture the scene: a group of rhythm-makers round a blazing fire at the Canalside social area… drums, rattles, all kinds of percussion instruments, some home made or improvised…a fantastic session of rhythm-making under the evening sky… maybe dancing and fire poi … sharing food and drink … sound like your kind of thing?

As of October, this adults-only rhythm circle will be held monthly on the Friday nearest the full moon (for September the date is this coming Friday 2nd). If the weather is good, we will be round a fire in the social area of Canalside. If the weather’s rainy, we will be in the lovely pole barn.

We invite you to bring your own percussion instruments (including home-made) if you have any. A number of West African drums and rattles will also be available to play. We welcome both experienced and new rhythm-makers, so don’t worry if you’ve never had a go before – just come along, have a bash and enjoy the experience!

You are also welcome to bring snacks and drinks, for yourselves or to share, after we have made beautiful music together!
