Drum Circle, Asheville NC

Every Friday evening during summer from 7pm till 10pm
there is a drum circle in downtown Asheville in Pritchard
Park. All types and ages of drummers take part and the
audience gets very involved with dancing, shouting and swaying
to the beat. Sort of like a 20th century urban version of the
dance in Matrix. For more information, pictures and video
