Percussion is the heartbeat of the music world.

Meg's solo work is a journey through cultures and time. Using percussion instruments exclusively on each piece, Meg weaves rhythms on a tapestry colored with undiscovered worlds and peoples. Explore the many cultures, continents, passions, styles, feels, and techniques as Meg connects you to the vast and diverse family of percussion instruments and their interconnections. The theme of world connection and the primal need of finding your own path are threads laced through all of her work.
