FPC Elizabethton Dances to the Beat of a Djembe

You are going to love this. If you are anywhere nearby, make plans to come to the Djembe workshop and/or performance next Saturday, August 21st at your favorite drum beating church in the woods. Here is the story:

Djembe Workshop & Performance with Billy Zanski & Linda Go

Last year’s amazing event was so popular that we just had to bring Billy & Linda back!

4:00 - 5:30 Instruction in basic (and not so basic) African drum beats during the workshop. Bring your own djembe-style drum. A limited number of djembe will be available with pre-registration.

7:00 pm Enjoy an exhilarating concert led by this energetic and talented couple. The owner of Skinny Beats Drum Shop in Asheville, NC, Billy has been building and playing drums for over a decade. He has studied with masters in the US, West Africa and Brazil and has taught drumming for 12 years. Linda literally rocks the house with her powerful drumming and the instrument she has affectionately dubbed “Bubba”. This is an event not to be missed!

Cost for the workshop AND performance is $25. Registration for the workshop is required by August 18th.

Cost for the performance only is $10. Registration for the performance alone is not required.
Good stuff. See you there. Download a flier.
