In Memoriam: Layne Redmond, 1952-2013

We mourn the passing of Layne Redmond, author of When The Drummers Were Women, frame drummer and teacher.  Layne died of cancer the morning of Oct. 28 in Asheville NC. She was 61. I feel fortunate to have been able to attend her "Buzz Off" birthday party via live internet streaming August 17, and inspired by her high spirits and openness as death approached. Many tributes are already springing up like flowers on the Internet. At this moment, some of them are:
The Wild Hunt (posted by Jason Pitzl-Waters, written by Wendy Griffin) with 2 videos
One Vibration
Percussive Arts Society
The Witch of Stitches
Layne's Facebook Page
Women Frame Drumming on Facebook
Drum Magazine on Facebook

May she rest in the arms of the Goddess and be renewed.
