2014 brings an new teacher, and is no one less than John Joe Kelly. We are glad that one of the leading bodhran players in the world is joining the teacher’s panel for 2014.
So our tutorial team for 2014 will include John Joe Kelly, Martin O’Neill, Cormac Byrne, Jim Higgins, Colm Phelan, Aimee Farrell-Courtney and Rolf Wagels. To read more about the teachers, follow this link.
We will have two great concerts: one will be Martin O’Neill & Friends (featuring members of Danú) and the other will sport one of Ireland’s up and coming band: The Full Set, with Eamonn Moloney on bodhran!
The three workshops/lectures which will take place during the day between classes will be given by Mícheál O’hÁlmháin himself, Colm O’Donnell, lilter, singer and flute player and by Nicholas Carolan, Director of the Irish Traditional Music Archive, also presenter of “Come West Along the Road”, the longest running television programme on Irish traditional music.
Stevie Moises will bring his mobile lathe and a selection of woods, so he will be able to turn any tippers to your liking! He will be working in his workshop during the week and will be available for chats and tipper talk. Christian Hedwitschak will bring a selection of drums and he will also be available during the week.
