The echo of a drum across a battlefield can embolden an army preparing for imminent combat and in turn create fear and dissention among the ranks of opposing soldiers. Prior to modern communications, nearly every Army signaled their troops through varying drum beats and cadences.Flank an enemy position, hold a shield wall, march at double-time; the drum told the soldier what to do, where to go, and how fast to move. Rolling Thunder draws its focus from the battle drums of innumerable wars throughout history. We invite all to come and play on one or all of our 30+ drums. Throughout the faire, we will be offering drumming classes and demonstrations.
