folx Percussion is a percussion group created by its founders Kendall Rhymer and McKenzie Squires. Their mission is to create a safe and positive environment for an all female and non-binary percussionist group where its members are free to create music and explore the unconventional.
Kendall Rhymer (she/they) and McKenzie Squires (they/she) met during their undergraduate studies where they worked with Adam Groh and Diana Loomer at Western Carolina University. Their love for performing in percussion ensembles and chamber groups started during the pandemic when they attended So Percussion’s Summer Institute via zoom. Here they found an environment that allowed them to express themselves how they wanted to without judgment. This environment fostered conversations about what it is like to be a womxn in the percussion field. After SoSI, the idea that they should take their passion and love for playing with one another and create a space for people like them to do the same originated.
