Hello, I’m British by birth and have been living in Italy for nearly 30 years. I have been learning to play the Bodhràn since last December, having had a sort of epiphany at the Hastings Fleadh in November!! Obviously the moment was right… I found a wonderful teacher only 10 minutes from home, who teaches at a school of traditional music and found a second hand instrument within a week. Couldn’t have been easier. Having a lot of fun learning and playing with a group of other students at the school, we have even played several "concerts" this summer. So, all I can say is, "it’s never too late!" I’m passionate about music, all genres.
