Drum circle planned in downtown Franklin

Written by 

A drumming circle for all ages will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 12, on the Courthouse Plaza on Main Street in downtown Franklin.  

Mary Eileen Ferrick is the circle leader. People may bring their own drums and rhythm instruments, or choose from the wide assortment provided, including African djembes, guiros, shakers, and buffalo drums. Large take-home “can” drums will be provided for the children. Bring a lawn chair and sit in the shade of the Macon County Courthouse. Peppermint Patti’s ice cream is sold at all Council outdoor concerts.

This program is part of the Arts Council’s Sunday-on-the-Square series, which ends June 19 with an old-time sing-along and a demonstration by Franklin’s Umbutu a cappella ensemble.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
