Want to know how to add the skin to a bodhran? Or how wood is worked to make uilleann pipes? Do you love traditional music? Come see and hear maker-musicians from Heritage NL’s Mentor-Apprentice Program!
Neil O’Grady and his apprentice Rob Brown will walk you through crafting uilleann (Irish) pipes — woodworking, leatherwork and metalwork.
Paddy Mackey and his apprentice, Bryan Poirier, will explain how they mould and steam wood to shape a bodhran, add tuners, and mount the skin to create a drum.
Flute-maker Michelle Brophy will also join the maker-musicians in the discussion. Afterwards they will be joined by local musician Charlene Sudbrink for a jam session!
When: 2-3:30pm Saturday, March 25th, 2023
