Irish bodhrán demonstration and lesson

Venue: Daytime experience – city centre venue, ie Bad Bobs in Temple Bar – location to be advised at time of booking.

The traditional bodhrán drum is often played in an Irish music session. Traditionally the rim of the drum is made from bent plywood with a drumhead of goatskin and its distinct sound is unique to Irish music.

With the Bodhrán Irish Drum Lesson groups will learn some of the history of the Traditional Irish Drum called Bodhrán (bow ran).  Each guest will get to learn to play the Irish musical beats of “Reels” and “Jigs” on the instrument, they will play along to a song and music and they will get to sing a traditional Dublin tune with their instructor.  Bodhrán Drums and word sheets for songs are included.
