Athens musician Carl Lindberg will be remembered by friends on Sat., June 6 from 9-11 a.m. with “Beat the Drum,” led by Dr. Arvin Scott, in the flower garden at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Donations will be accepted and contributed to Nuçi’s Space, the nonprofit health and music resource center, in memory of Lindberg, who passed away on May 14.
In a press release, Dr. Scott said, “I, along with Sunny Ortiz of Widespread Panic, created Beat the Drum 18 years ago as a fundraiser, and found that gathering together in rhythm can be both healing and uplifting. It seemed the perfect tribute to Carl, who was a dear friend to so many in Athens, and loved the State Botanical Garden.”
Participants are encouraged to bring any kind of percussion instrument to play and something to sit on.
