The bodhrán is the heartbeat of Irish music. In this interactive workshop you’ll learn the fundamentals of playing this awesome instrument, with plenty of emphasis on fun!

Led by award-winning internationally-renowned Irish percussionist Ruairi Glasheen, participants will explore the history of how this dynamic instrument is played, teamed with a range of technical and musical skills, including how to play along to both jigs and reels. No musical experience necessary and bodhráns are provided!

Obsessed by drums and rhythm from an early age, Ruairi made his musical debut on the Irish bodhrán aged four. Graduating with first-class honours from The Royal College of Music, he was also recipient of the President’s Award. Ruairi leads a diverse career in music, performing with numerous artists and ensembles, collaborating with arts organisations to create high impact and inclusive education projects as well as being in demand as a presenter, workshop leader and facilitator.
