Event Description

Sponsored by the Focus Group of Music, and Dancing and Stories, Oh, My!
Party Up for Power Down 4 is Music Night

At 7pm we will be gathering at Owl Farm, the home of Merry Teesdale. This is all about reclaiming our ability and our willingness to entertain ourselves. Let’s take the evening to enrich our lives with music, story and song. The idea is to have a drum circle with music interspersed with stories. There will be lots of good listening and the potential for dancing. Please consider joining the new Focus Group on our TW Ning site!

Musical instruments (focus will be on percussion)
Stories to share and ears to listen
Potluck finger food and drinks – beer and wine are fine

DIRECTIONS to 3977 Griffith:
It's easy to get there.

Holly west (Eldridge, Marine Dr.) 4.5 miles (10 min. drive) to the Fort Bellingham Market on Bancroft. Go one block farther to Griffith Ave. Turn north and go one block to the end of the pavement. Turn left into driveway 3977 Griffith, yellow farmhouse.

Alternative route for out-of-towners:

Take I-5 to the Bakerview exit. Turn west on Bakerview about .5 mi to Marine Dr. Turn right and go 1 mi. to the Fort Bellingham Market. See directions above for the rest.

For bikers, it is a pleasant 15 or 20 minute ride from the Co-op on Holly.

Hope everyone has a great time tonight, I wish I could be there. Since this one is just for rhythm, maybe another time there could be just acoustic music without drums?

Thank you Jeffrey for organizing the bike party. I would like to join, specially that I will be already at the Public Market for another meeting. See you tomorrow at 6:30.

A few of us will be leaving Public Market at 6:30-6:40 by bicycle. Let me know if you will be joining the ride.

I was inspired when I read the following from the person who has agreed to lead our event – Kay Dayss:

"Yes! Thanks so much! I'd love to lead this event. Yes, Yes, Yes!

I love to have both the African and the Native American together. This is what the transition to unity is all about. The lower chakra African passionate earth-based rhythms meeting the Native American spiritual sky-based rhythms in the middle, at the HEART where we are all connected. So powerful, magical, and FUN!

People can switch around so that they can experience the power of all the kinds of the percussion instruments. I even have a feeling that we will, by the end of the night, create a performance piece that we as a group can take to other events in the city to draw people into the the power of rhythm. We can even put it on in a theatrical venue that gets the audience involved in the performance. The rhythm, the conversation, and the powwow drum can help us to bring ALL the people together.

I think having a theme helps folks to get into the dance of the drumbeat.


And from our host – Merry Teesdale:

"I'm thinking we should leave the music-type instruments out of the mix,
and just focus on rhythm. The main thing I want people to experience is
the energy and power and satisfaction that comes from being in sync with
others. And for them to have FUN, of course. Music is the way adults
play with each other. I want people to open up and get loose and start
playing with each other."
