Transform Yourself with Jim Donovan

When: Fri., June 17 2011

Got about as much rhythm as an out-of-balance Maytag? Jim Donovan is looking for you! In recent years, the percussionist and founding member of Pittsburgh's Rusted Root has expanded his reach beyond the band and into transformative workshops centered on drumming and chanting. "I specialize in people who say they don't have any rhythm!" laughs the easy-going musician, teacher, and Reiki practitioner. "I empower them. Drumming brings people together and reminds them what's important: being present, being connected, and sharing in an experience that they've helped to create. It moves people — and it doesn't matter if they have rhythm or not!" Donovan presents his workshops around the world; tonight at 7 p.m., he'll be at River's Edge in Cleveland for a Drum and Chant Transformation workshop, where he'll teach rhythms, mantras, personal growth concepts, and relaxation techniques. No experience is needed, and Donovan provides the drums. Cost is $35 in advance and $45 at the door. River's Edge is at 3430 Rocky River Dr. Find out more at or by calling 216-688-1111. — Cicora
