Bodhran Sessions

Upcoming Events

Join us every Tuesday evening at 7 pm for a bodhran session at Western College Main Street campus. Players at all levels, including beginners, are welcome. Sessions are free for members of the Bay St. George Folk Arts Council.

Great opportunity to learn to play bodhran in an informal group setting!

Did You Know?

The bodhrán is one of the most basic of drums and as such it is similar to the frame drums distributed widely across northern Africa from the Middle East, and has cognates in instruments used for Arabic music and the musical traditions of the Mediterranean region

A larger form is found in the Iranian daff, which is played with the fingers in an upright position, without a stick. Traditional skin drums made by some Native Americans are very close in design to the bodhrán as well.
