David Lewis and Rolf Wagels

David and Rolf are long time members of the management team of Craiceann. They will talk about the development of Craiceann, bodhráns and bodhrán playing over the last twenty years. We are lucky to live in a time in which the bodhrán is evolving and they will look into what has happened in the last twenty years both in musical terms and in the development in bodhrán making. We hope Craiceann has played a vital part in these developments…


Donal Lunny

Donal Lunny needs no introduction: He is an icon in the Irish Traditional Music world over the last thirty years. As a performer, producer, and mentor, he has had a huge influence on the music itself and on those who play and just listen to this powerful part of our Irish culture and heritage. He has been a member of many landmark bands such as Planxty, The Bothy Band, Moving Hearts, and more recently Mozaik. 

Donal will talk about the development of bass bodhrán playing and his involvement in creating a new bass bodhrán called dordrán with maker Christian Hedwitschak.
