Intro to Bodhran with Les Starkey
March 14 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$10
The IRL Festival music school is delighted to offer a chance to learn the bodhran or brush up on your skills with Les Starkey.
Les has been a popular Bodhran player and teacher in the region for for over 29 years. He found his passion for this instrument through his mother’s influence of her heritage and rhythm. He brings many hours of experience in performing at various venues and playing at many Irish Trad sessions. He has made pilgrimages to Ireland to absorb the tutelage of some of the top Bodhran players in the Irish Tradition and had years of experience playing in groups like the Grand River Ceili Band and Floating Widget (including 4 appearances with the Chieftains). A frequent teacher at the Spring Rain Weekend and Goderich Celtic College, Les can connect you with the heartbeat of Irish Traditional music.
