Les Getchell

I play and teach bodhrán. Had many teachers myself. I also play other percussion in performance or practice but not in sessions. Just as soon listen to a good session or other bodhrán and not play.

Played other instruments since age 12. Also love jazz, blues and other traditional music. Not a fan of drum circles.

Played in sessions and Irish traditional bands in western Pennsylvania since the early 90s. Now in Connecticut.

Have also organized traditional music concerts, festivals and classes (and a Comhaltas branch) and represented touring artists but no longer active.
