We're excited to have this opportunity to be together and move near each other, the music, and the outdoor environment.
Come experience music outside in the field at Earthdance. Bring a blanket, your mask (if you use the bathrooms inside), beverages and a picnic if you please. The buildings remain closed but our hearts are open.
Sunday, August 19th, 3:30 - 5:30pm
Registration is Required
$15 - $25 sliding scale
Bathrooms are available but the buildings remain close to the public.
Amanda Turk joined by Charlie Shew
Amanda holds the generational beat of the drum in her blood. Both her father and her paternal grandfather were drummers. She grew up in the epicenter of the music world with her family business, Colony Records of NYC. In 2006 she discovered the darbuka, a type of tabla, and passionately began her study of Middle Eastern percussion under the guidance of contemporary percussion masters Raquy Danziger (Brooklyn/Istanbul), Bunyamin Olguncan (Istanbul), and Todd Roach (Brattleboro, VT). She makes regular pilgrimages to Turkey to delve deeper into a style called the Turkish Split Hand Technique and applies these techniques to a variety of drums including handpan, frame drum, riq, and cajon. When her hands are not on a drum, Amanda nurtures her community with her passion for bodywork in a 20 year massage therapy practice in Northampton, MA.
