As part of the annual Roswell Roots festival Barrington Hall will celebrate West African heritage with the sounds, scents, tales and flavors of the area this Saturday, Feb. 9.
The historic home welcome Chef Sallie Ann Robinson and the musicians of DrumRise.
Robinson will take over the historic home’s kitchen as she prepares coastal specialties and shares memories of growing up Gullah on South Carolina’s Daufuskie Island. Her vivid stories provide a rich and colorful glimpse into a vanishing way of life. Sample her award-winning cuisine as she incorporates her love of cooking with her lively storytelling for a truly memorable experience.
On the front lawn listen to the tribal drum sounds reverberate across the yard as the founders of DrumRise demonstrate the drumming techniques they learned from Guinean master drummer Mamady Keita. After a brief lesson, stay and join in the drum circle. You’ll discover that you can learn to drum, even if you’ve never before touched a musical instrument.
Robinson will be in the kitchen from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. while DrumRise provides their drumming demonstration and audience participation from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. on the front lawn of Barrington Hall.
