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.

This are delighted to announce Goitse will headline this years concert series. They will be launching their new D is on Thursday the 18th in Aras Chronnin. We of July will feature Colm Phelan on the Bodhrán and his multi award winning band Goitse. They will launch their highly anticipated 5th Studio album “Úr” at Búla Buzz. Tickets are €15 and can be purchased here: https://billetto.ie/e/goitse-album-launch-tickets-362802
