    Drum Circle to receive new equipment

    The Asheville Downtown Association will present several drums and accessories to the Asheville Drum Circle at 7 p.m. Friday.
    “We are so fortunate to have this group of people who create this music in Pritchard Park,” said Byron Greiner, the president of the association's board of directors, in a statement. "The circle encourages participation and we are donating instruments to support their activities."
    The association is donating a 55-gallon dun dun, two djembes, an ashiko, a cowbell, three sets of claves and three shakers.

    The drum circle has been active since 2001 and takes place each Friday, weather permitting, in Pritchard Park, downtown.
