Michael EagleIP Performing and Educational Artist Michael Eagle of New York City, NY recently completed a 5 week tour of Europe and the UK. The extended overseas trip involved various music festivals, clinics, workshops and performances in France, England, The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. The diverse array of presentations covered most of the major styles of rudimental drumming worldwide including Traditional American (Fife & Drum), Contemporary American (DCI), Scottish Pipe Band, and Swiss/Basel Drumming. Other highlights included performing with IP Artist Ensemble Bagad Cap Caval for their 2017 Championship performance at Brest, France as well as Basler Fasnacht, which is Switzerland's traditional Carnival.

"There is something brewing among rudimental drummers across the globe right now. Many players from many different genres and communities are beginning to connect perhaps like never before in the spirit of learning and sharing their respected traditions of drumming and music. It's a very exciting thing to witness, and I am beyond humbled that so many different communities in another part of the world would be so welcoming and just as eager to learn from me as I was from them."
