Drum Circle Helps Welcome Summer

A traditional drum circle held Saturday morning at the Farmers Market welcomed the summer season, the super moon and maybe even the tomato crop. Water Valley’s circle was one of many held all over the world, according to organizers.

Kevin Guyer taught Mickey Howley (left) how to thump two sticks together in rhythm during the drum circle Saturday. For more, see Howley’s Street Talk column under Herald columnists.

It wasn’t the quietest place to read, but this young lady didn’t seem to mind.

There was a drum circle at the Farmers Market in Railroad Park Saturday morning to help welcome summer and in honor of the super moon. The term “Drum Circle” originated in the United State during the late 1960s and early 1970s for any group of people who gather (informally) to play music together.
