DrumTrek Day 3

I waved goodbye to my hosts and set off for a stunning morning drive across The Isle of Skye.

Further beauty was encountered all the way across the Highlands as I wove my way towards Edinburgh. The land is singing me a strong and powerful song to ease me along my road.

I set off at 7am and landed at 2.30pm. Long  drive. Shoulders feeling the pace of the miles traveled these last few days.

Our original Edinburgh venue was repossessed a few days ago and so the local team of James, Mowley Chris and Milk did a great job of pulling the gig together and found a lovely Parish Church Centre in a very lovely part of the City.

As often happens we had just finished set up when the first drummers arrived…before too long we were 20 or so strong and a good mix of experience and novice players.

We pulled together some nice grooves using drums and then similar with percussion.

One of the participants was Bruno Ashley, teacher and singer extraordinaire from Zimbabwe who came along with Stuart Dunwoodie, an Edinburgh based drum and dance teacher and a very fine and sensitive player.

Between them they led a lovely song which you can hear part of in the video clip below along with some of the latter stages of the drumming.

A very lovely circle. Thank You Edinburgh.

Blog done. Time for some shut eye. Night folks. x
