Girls and Drums

Girls definitely do play drums! It was astonishing to experience an eighty year old woman drummer, whose passion, energy, and humor was undiminished. We heard Elaine Hoffman Watts play tonight, along with her daughter on trumpet and vocals, and a third woman on accordion: the klezmer band. Called "a musical national treasure" and awarded the Heritage Fellowship Award, all I know is that their playing channeled my father, brought me to tears, and renewed my soul!
