Friday 25th June 2010 the second of 3 drumming nights took place as planned in the village of Carrowdore, Co. Down at 8pm. It was a dry warm night, perfect for drumming - 6 drums turned up although 1 drum had to leave early, which was pleasing.
It was as usual slow to start however when it got going it was hot drumming, plenty of local drummers turned up which meant the the drums rarely sat on the ground not being played. A very good crowd gathered many cars stopped and listened and took a few photographs, an unusual scene in a small village.
The local drummers always went to Carrowdore for many years it was one of the traditional drumming nights on the run up to the 12th sadly for 2 years it was postponed nevertheless it was great to get back again this year.
Can I thank Mark T for the snaps, I was unable to take any photo's as I played the drum most of the night, and keeping guard - as a local drunk appeared and took a shine to my drum - I stopping briefly towards the end to fife 3 x tunes, which went down well.
The next drumming night is the big one for us 'Under the Arch' in Newtownards on Saturday 10th July 2010 at 730pmish. Hope to see you all there.
