At present there are no Spring bodhran classes scheduled but we will post this information online should classes be added.
Class: Bodhran. The ICC will be hosting a Bodhran Workshop with Mance Grady. If you are interested in participating in this workshop with a view to signing up classes please contact the ICCNE office at 781 821 8291.
Mance has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts as a Master Bodhrán Player and the "first" American endorsed by them to teach in the United States.
Mance has been performing professionally for 38 years with the best musicians in traditional Irish music. He was also featured in Traditional Irish Music Magazine on two separate occasions for his contributions as both a Bodhrán builder and performer. Mance Grady formats the content of the classes to suit students' specific needs. Grady notes "The classes are very organic and low pressure. Relaxation is key to success in playing the bodhrán and humor is a great relaxer, so inevitably, classes are a lot of fun!"
If all that is not enough, he has been making the Bodhran for close to four decades thus being able to offer insight into not only the care and maintenance of the Bodhrán but teaching it with authority, reputation, and years of experience.
