We invite you to join Drum Brothers and friends for a weekend filled with rhythm, fun, and heart-felt community. We're exited to be offering this end-of-summer event at a new location and on a great weekend! Whether you're just beginning to explore the drum or already a seasoned player, join us as we celebrate the joy of community music making and the beauty of summertime in Montana.

Our weekend gathering will be held at Cane Ridge West conference and retreat center just east of Lincoln, Montana, and right next to the Blackfoot River. Cane Ridge West has all the necessary comforts: a beautiful log lodge and dining hall, a bath house, bunk houses for indoor lodging, numerous spots for tent camping, RV hook ups, and shaded areas for outdoor classes.

Our time together will be filled with morning song circles, West African hand-drumming classes for all levels, drum-making, African dance, and evening celebration circles around the fire (get ready to drum, dance, and sing). We'll also have some Saturday afternoon free time to relax, hike, or take a dip in the Blackfoot River! Drum-makers will be building a 12"x 24" Ashiko drum. This dynamic hand drum is ideal for playing a variety of world rhythms. Extra drums will be available for new drummers.

We will begin our circle with an evening meal at 6:30pm on Friday, Sept. 8th. The gathering will continue until 3pm Sunday, Sept 10th. We encourage you to register early to insure your place. Call 406-531-8109 or email Matthew@drumbrothers.com with any questions.

There is something special about community music-making on the land and under the September sun! We hope to have you with us.
