Album Notes
Ed Haggard is a percussionist, drumming teacher, drum circle facilitator and band leader who loves to play. He leads the neo-tribal drum dance band, The Love Drums, and a kids percussion ensemble, The Drumbinos, which includes his 9 year old son. Both groups play for a wide variety of events around their home base, Nashville, TN. Ed and son perform as a charming duo.
The Love Drums are inspired by drumming traditions from around the world, especially west Africa. After 20 years of study and play, Ed has recorded his first studio album. He expresses great gratitude for Mamady Keita, Famadou Konate, Bolokada Conde, Babatundi Olatunji and many others.
Ed and The Love Drums have hosted a Nashville monthly event called, The WhizBang, over 90 times. The band has played for effigy burns at Burning Man regionals, Drum & Splash, Nashville Shakespeare, Nashville Art Crawl, Vanderbilt...
Teaching is a large part of Haggard’s work. He has taught thousands of drum classes and workshops and has facilitated many drum circles. Ed was Music Director for Nashville Shakespeare’s 2013 production of Midsummer Night’s Dream with an all percussion musical accompaniment. He is a percussionist in a popular kirtan band called Samavayah. He's played with Human Revolution, Shaun Gallaway, Pru Clearwater...
 Ed was the Nashville Poetry Slam Champ of Nashville for three years in the early nineties. He is a former president of the Nashville Branch of the Screen Actors Guild. Ed has done many commercials, voiceovers, a lot of theatre, and he’s has had many appearances in movies and TV. He wrote, produced and performed his critically acclaimed one man show, "Son of White Man: The Naked Truth" over 70 times in a dozen cities. He is a challenge course/ropes course facilitator for Adventureworks, Inc. And he fixes djembes real nice. It’s pretty easy for Ed to stay busy.
Getting in the groove, drumming and dancing are at the top of the list.

A review posted on FaceBook group: HAND DRUM RHYTHM PLAYERS & DANCERS.
When hand drum percussion begins... it immediately enters your soul.
Ed Haggard is an excellent percussionist, hand drum teacher, drum circle facilitator and band leader who loves to be inspired by drumming traditions from around the world, especially West Africa. After 20 years of study & play, Ed has recorded his first studio album. *** I say "LUCKY US" ***
I have the famous Micky Hart hand drum album, but, I believe I will be playing "The Love Drums" more.
Now, I'm not going to say I can't cast a tiny little shade on this production, but know it reflects my taste when I do.
I'm going to start looking for the next album that (1.) will hopefully include similar snappy, enchanting rhythms from different cultures all over planet, like Middle Eastern Doumbek, AND (2.) I am not one who enjoys the addition of Didgeridoo.... just because they have one. I have a Cow Bell, but I don't toss into every performance just so I won't hear some one shout "More Cow Bell!".
Let me be very clear, this album shows a deep knowledge of what we hand drum thumper's love most.... hand drum and world hand percussion rhythm JOY.
I extend 'high praise' to Ed Haggard and his group, with best wishes for more success in the future.

***Hand Drum Rhythm Player & Dancers promotes hand drum, dance and world hand percussion and does not 'shill' for anyone.***
