Lambeg Drumming Match

Keen lambeg drum enthusiasts will not want to miss the annual Drumming Match being held this Saturday (14th July) in Ballymoney. The event is being hosted jointly by the County Antrim Drumming Association and Ballymoney District LOL 16 and will be held outside Ballymoney Orange Hall in Upper High Street, commencing at 8:00pm.

Each year, drummers from across the Province converge in Ballymoney for this event and this year should be no exception. The art of lambeg drumming is witnessing something of a revival but we should pay tribute to those who have kept the art alive down through the years with all the determination that is required to play this great symbol of the Ulster Scots musical tradition.
