Most households around the country have an old bodhran lying around in a closet somewhere or hanging on a wall, but most people do not know how to play it.
Well that is all about to change with the Funky Drums bodhran courses, running in the Cottage Bar, Salthill, beginning next week.
The bodhran is a fantastic sounding drum, which requires great skill and subtlety to play. It has become a hugely popular addition to the trad scene and is enjoying a massive resurgence in Ireland now with more people realising that it is simply a brilliant and highly rewarding instrument to play.
All levels are catered for within the new classes from the complete beginner who has never played before, to intermediate levels. The classes are all group lessons and are very social and fantastic fun. There is an organised trad session every month for all the students to apply what is learned in the classes and have the craic with a few pints.
Classes will run on Tuesday evenings and all drums are provided. To book your place call Brian on 087 1259156 or email [email protected].
