Follen Church Music Program

Freedom Land Chorus with Melanie DeMore

During her community-building residency in February and March 2020, Melanie will make us into “one big drum” through the Gullah stick-pounding tradition. Detailed schedule information for this unique song and story experience is available at follen.org and there’ll be follow-up communication with you in early January.

I would like to sing in the chorus. The stick pounding wkshop is full, but I did this workshop with Melanie this past summer - and have the Gullah stick I made! Is that ok ?
Karen Kashian
I too attended Melanie's Gullah Stick Pounding workshop last summer at Ferry Beach. I cannot make the workshop on 2/2 but can come to rehearsals.
