Join chef and author Sallie Ann Robinson in the historic home’s kitchen as she prepares her coastal specialties and shares memories of growing up Gullah on South Carolina’s Daufuskie Island. Her vivid stories provide a rich and colorful glimpse into a vanishing way of life. Sample her award-winning cuisine as she incorporates her love of cooking with her lively storytelling for a truly memorable experience.

Then, on the front lawn of the property, tribal drum sounds will reverberate across the yard as the founders of DrumRise demonstrate the drumming techniques they learned from Guinean master drummer Mamady Keita. After a brief lesson, stay and join in the drum circle. You’ll discover that you can learn to drum, even if you’ve never before touched a musical instrument.

Sallie Ann Robinson will be in the kitchen from 11:00AM until 3:00PM while DrumRise provides their drumming demonstration and audience participation from 11:00AM until 1:30PM on the front lawn of Barrington Hall. It’s a day guaranteed to stimulate all your senses!
