This workshop is suitable for players who have their own bodhrán and have some basic technique, including those who have been on previous Beginnerspart 1 workshops.
It will build on the basic technique for playing jigs and reels, introduce slip jigs, polkas, hornpipes and possibly some odd-time tunes. It will also explore the bodhrán’s pitched capabilities, helping participants tune their instruments to be harmonically sympathetic to the tunes or songs they accompany.
Participants will also explore more advanced stick techniques (rolls/triplets/subdivisions). You will need to bring your own bodhrán.
