Welcome to my bodhrán site

I'm Stuart Dunlop, born in Scotland, living in Co. Donegal, Ireland. I Play in a regular session in the Diamond Bar, Raphoe, Co. Donegal. We now regularly have eight or ten musicians, and can peak at around 25.

I am largely self-taught, but have learned much from the Tommy Hayes video - "Bodhrán, Bones and Spoons". I have tried the bones, and am making progress, but if my current speed of improvement is anything to go by, it will take years for me to be competent enough to play in a session :)
