John Joe Kelly: complete beginners bodhrán skills 26Oct

John Joe Kelly is a master bodhrán player, involved in world music and the folk music scene, especially as a member of Flook.

This is a rare opportunity to get tuition from the man himself, in a relatively intimate setting.

Participants will need to bring their own bodhrán and tipper to play.

Advice on purchasing bodhrán can be found here: Another vendor is Hobgoblins: John Joe encourages people not to go for a very expensive bodhrán to begin, but to try one out and get a feel for playing before investing in something expensive. Bodhrán are available on eBay and Amazon from as little as £25.

The 10am class is for complete beginners. Those with a little more skill should consider the intermediate to advanced class later in the day.

Please note: our leaflet labelled this session as an ‘intermediate’, rather than a ‘complete beginners’ session. It will be run as a complete beginners session. Anyone with more advanced skills should book on the 12.30pm event. We apologise for any confusion caused.
