More than 100 attend Kincardine Drums ’05

More than 100 side-, tenor- and bass-drummers attended the first Kincardine Drums workshop in the tiny town of Kincardine, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Huron to learn from teachers Jim Kilpatrick, John Fisher, Craig Colquhoun, and Tyler Fry.

“Everybody said they went home with a head full of information,” says Colquhoun, who organized the event, adding that Cliff Davis of Kansas City travelled the farthest.

The two-day workshop allowed students to receive instruction from teachers on the first day, and on the second day gain interactive experience listening to live performances and analyzing performances from the top three prize-winners at the World Pipe Band Championships on DVD.

“The response was overwhelming and plans for next year are to hold the event again, only we’ll move it earlier in the fall to stay away from the threat of the snow,” Colquhoun added.

The weekend is thought to be the largest drumming-specific workshop ever held.
