Craiceann - The Bodhrán Summerschool 2015 takes place from Monday 22th through Friday 26th of June 2015!


Craiceann 2015 brings a new teacher: Robbie Walsh, who established the Bodhran Buzz workshop series all over Ireland. Add to this last year’s new addition John Joe Kelly and our experienced team of the previous years and you get our tutorial team for 2015: John Joe Kelly, Martin O’Neill, Cormac Byrne, Jim Higgins, Colm Phelan, Aimee Farrell-Courtney, Robbie Walsh and Rolf Wagels.

We will have two great concerts: one will feature Kila’s Rónán Ó Snodaigh and friends and the other will sport Caitlin Nic Gabhann & Ciarán Ó Maonaigh, who will bring a very special guest to the island: Bodhrán legend Colm Murphy!

The three workshops/lectures which will take place during the day between classes will be given by Mícheál O’hÁlmháin himself, Rónán Ó Snodaigh, bodhrán player, singer and poet and by Christian Hedwitschak, bodhrán maker.

Tipper maker Stevie Moises will be at Craiceann 2014. 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.
