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. That is all about to change with the Funky Drums bodhran courses running in the Bal Bar, Salthill, beginning in the last week of March.
The bodhran is a great 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 fun. There is an organised trad session every month for all the students to go along and apply what is learned in the classes, and of course have the craic with a few pints.
All drums are provided and courses are starting soon. To book your place call Brian on 087 1259156 or email [email protected].
