Cormac Byrne will be at the Ely Folk Festival this weekend, 13th to 15th July, and will join us at the BOD trader´s tent Saturday afternoon to demonstrate his signature Talking Bodhrán.  Timing is still to be determined, so keep an eye out for flyers, or stop by the BOD tent for an update.

Did you spot the new Bod Videos page on our site?  In addition to John’s video talking through our range of drums and beaters, there are several videos of Cormac playing the Talking Bodhrán.  Last spring Cormac was in concert at St. John’s Smith Square in London as part of an Indian / Western jazz fusion group, and the performance was extraordinary, a real joy.  Read more and give it a listen on the Videos page – and get your earphones, you don’t want to miss a note of this treat.
