Frame Drumming for Women

Layne Redmond was a celebrated, world renowned female drummer, and her work with the frame drum was revolutionary. Her book When the Drummers Were Women detailed the truth that many ancient depictions of women holding circular objects were actually representations of women using drums to heal, entertain and build community. Chris was able to meet Layne and study with her at workshops sponsored by the WDC before Layne passed away from cancer several years ago. This women only workshop will offer an instruction to Layne’s history with the drum, the high points of her book and the drumming techniques for this unique instrument.
