On October 13, the Million Women Drummers Gathering, a convergence “of drummers, environmentalists, earth stewards, artists, musicians, women, men, and children for the love of drums and trees,” makes its debut at the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz. The day-long convergence includes performances by local and national musicians, workshops and “playshops,” a “Blessing of the Trees and Instruments,” children’s events; a drum and instrument swap, and more. The festival is sponsored by the Million Women Drummers Gathering Initiative, a “a global, community-based, shared leadership initiative of concerned women drummers, musicians, artists, community members, and visionaries.” (518) 291-6129; MillionWomenDrummers.com.
