The Bodhrán Summer School is arranged around a series of daily master classes given by some of the world's best bodhrán players and teachers, and also includes special workshops relating to the instrument itself, and traditional Irish music in general.
As an additional benefit, music sessions are arranged each night in the island's pubs, and students are welcome to bring their drum and join in.
'Craiceann' - pronounced 'cracken' is the Irish name for skin, so it is felt an appropriate title for a school of drummers whose instruments depend on the hide of a goat.
