People we work with, play with, who use our drums, we admire, or just enjoy their company for a good session and a pint or two. And a few other interesting links too…
Stevie Moises – all the beaters offered for sale by BOD are made for us by Stevie
Hedwitschak Drums – Christian makes beautiful traditional wooden bodhráns in Bavaria
Cormac Byrne – percussionist, teacher and our collaborator on the Talking Bodhrán
Evan Carson – brilliant drummer, good friend
Colin Harte – American ethnomusicologist with special interest in bodhrán and an early adoptor of the BODdrum
Coton Morris – if I can’t drum, I can at least be dancing
Ely and Littleport Riot – a women’s Morris side for which I play
Catch the Pigeon – a ceilidh band for which I play
Dennis Cuddles Starlight Band – another celidh band for which I play
The Fountain – an Ely pub where I can often be found playing a session on Friday nights
Sadly all of these events have been cancelled for 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown, but these are some of our favourite events, and we look forward to the 2021 season.
World Music Workshop Festival formerly known as Drum Camp, near Bungay, Suffolk, 9-13 July. Trader stall and workshops.
Ely Folk Festival in Ely, Cambridgeshire, 10-12 July
In 2020 we will be missing the festival as vendors, but John will be playing his BODdrum (among other things!) with the Dennis Cuddles Starlight Band Saturday evening in the Ceilidh slot.
Folk East at Glemham Hall, Little Glemham, Suffolk, 21 -23 August. Trader stall.
RAL Colour Palette – the standard (but extensive!) colour set for industrial powder coating. The basic BODDrum uses a matte black finish of this type, but you can customise your BODdrum by choosing another colour from this range.
