Course fee of €300 which includes owning your own unique top quality Bodhrán at the end of the 5 day course. 

We are delighted to have returning to Búla Buzz 2020, master bodhrán maker Rob Forkner. The last two years this course has sold out and continues to be very popular with Bodhrán enthusiasts. Rob is from Austin, Texas, and over the last fifteen years he has been widely recognised as one of the leading bodhrán makers in the world. Both Robbie and Colm play his drums along with a long list of others around the world.

He will be running a special bodhrán making course as part of the school which will teach essential skills in bodhrán making and also give a unique insight into his specialised work and the making of a top class class bodhrán. Students who enroll in the course will make a high quality bodhrán with his guidance over the course of the week, and will be able to take it home at the end of the school. The course will take place on site at Aras Chronnin and will run outside of the hours of regular bodhrán tuition times.

*The course is restricted to 16 participants.
