Drum Circle Around the Bonfire

The last episode of Thursday’s Soup and Presentation series included something a little different. Kip and Celeste Roberts came to the Basecamp with instruments of all shapes and sizes. 
After a hearty soup dinner, the group of community members, guests, and employees alike circled around a strong bonfire. Kip and Celeste passed drums, triangles, tambourines and even a wash board to all.

Celeste helped us find our communal beat and together we sang, chanted and enjoyed the warmth of the fire against the winter night.

Some people led the group in their favorite songs, other bravely volunteered to lead the rhythm section and direct the group in call and response drumming. It takes some gusto to guide others through the rhythm of your choice or with your voice.

All in all, it was a fun warm event ending with smiles all around.
