2016 NW Folklife May 27-30
Here's what to love this year!
The Rhythm Tent presents workshops and family friendly recreational drumming lead by some of the best facilitators in the region. Here's how it works: show up, sit down, play a drum (or bones, or a didgerdoo depending on the workshop), leave, come back, repeat!
Rhythm Tent stage is presented by NW Folklife and SWPS (Seattle World Percussion Society) with workshop leaders, and drums provided (with NEW heads!) from the SWPS cache (did you know these are available for members to rent?).
NO BOOTH! We are taking a break to enjoy the festival this year. See you there! Call or visit our store in Lake City for a selection of handmade, fair trade instruments from around the world.
