Bodhrán Players

Since first being introduced to modern traditional music in the 1960s by Sean O Riada, the so-called father of the Irish music renaissance, the bodhran has attracted an array of superbly talented percussionists.

Here’s a short list of some of the bodhran players who are setting the world on fire with their beater work. You’ll find them to be the usual blend of ascendant younger upstarts mixed with long-established bodhrán pioneers and legends. When musicians debate about who the best bodhran players are, these are the names that appear in almost everybody’s top ten list.
