About Us

Búlabuzz was started in July, 2017 when two of Ireland’s leading Bodhrán teachers and performers Robbie Walsh and Colm Phelan joined forces to create a special summer school which caters for players of all ages and standard. Their aim was to pass on their knowledge and experience of the instrument to Bodhrán enthusiasts around the world.

The Bodhran Summer school is arranged around a series of classes given by Robbie, Colm and a host of  other world class Bodhrán players and teachers.

It also includes special workshops relating to the instrument itself, nightly music sessions with local musicians and two concerts featuring top class Bodhrán players.

2019 Concerts featured: Goitse and also Kieran Munnelly and Siobhán O’Donnell.
