Fergal Scahill, All Ireland champion on bodhrán, will offer an all-levels bodhrán workshop. As a terrific Irish fiddle player, Fergal is uniquely placed to demonstrate the basic principles of rhythm and also the subtleties of accompanying other musicians.

Issues such as missed notes, rhythm problems and picking will be addressed. The workshop will also demonstrate the use of ornamentation and variation to embellish tunes.
