John Joe Kelly: intermediate to advanced 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 12.30pm class is for intermediate to advanced players. Those just starting out, should consider the complete beginners’ class earlier in the day.
