Keith Carlock lines up drum clinics

Drum ace set for masterclass shows

Keith Carlock will give fans the chance to get an up-close-and-personal look at his playing next month.

The renowned drummer, who has held the sticks for Steely Dan and Sting, will take part in a series of special Yamaha and Zildjian clinics.

Carlock will get the tom-bashing action underway at Reading’s DrumWright on 15 March, before heading on to Birmingham PMT and Manchester DrumCentre on 16 and 17 respectively.

The US-born sticksman will round off the masterclasses at Gateshead Drum Shop on 18 March.

Gavin Thomas, UK Product Manager for Yamaha Drums and Zildjian, said: “Keith came to the UK for a series of drum clinics for us three years ago, since then Keith’s career has developed and his talents even further recognised.

“These dates provide a rare opportunity to see Keith’s powerful performances up close and to understand his approach to drumming. I can’t wait.”
