As part of its founding in 1990, Earth Drum Council was conceived as a place for the drummers of EarthSpirit Community to hone their craft, to return in service to the community. Meeting beyond once or twice per year, EDC brought drummers and dancers together to learn rhythms, build skills, and practice, and then brought that energy at ESC’s annual events, Rites of Spring and Twilight Covening. More than 20 years later, many other drummers and musicians have joined the EarthSpirit community, and EDC has brought our teaching and facilitation to many other events, festivals, and gatherings.
