Drumming has been part of life across many cultures for lifetimes and is often at the heart of ceremonies. Ancient Celtic beliefs include the drum being the heart beat of mother earth.
The first modern snare drum was created in medieval Europe. There is little evidence of mankind using drum sticks from the ancient days; however, it is likely they were used. Some of the earliest known drum sticks were from the 1300's. They were used to beat snare drums called Tabors made from wood.
If you have never drummed before, come along and give it a go.
This workshop will be taken by Joe Caudwell - a well known island drummer, teacher and didgeridoo player.
