Giving Tree Music

August 31, 2019, 11am - 2pm

Peabody Memorial Library

As part of Peabody Memorial Library's End of Summer Celebration, we'll be joined by Giving Tree Music!

Steve Turner has been playing drums since he was 4 years old, and has performed all over the United States and Europe. He started Giving Tree Music in 1999 as a drum maker and artist selling his drums at festivals, art shows and galleries. To sell his art, he would put them out for people to play, and hope they would fall in love with a drum and take it home. He began to fall in love with the connections people made with each other while drumming. For the past 15 years he has been drumming with schools and aftercare programs, senior centers, special needs groups, corporate groups, jails and anywhere he can put a drum into someones hands. The drum is a vehicle for connecting with your community.
