GUEST,Ana I play the Bodhran and I am proud of it (42) RE: I play the Bodhran and I am proud of it 27 Apr 10

Kerry style? What are the different styles, and are they really region dictated? Does Scotland have a style...and if so, how does it go.
Was in India (Rajasthan - some think 1st home of the gypsies) a few weeks back, and was fascinated to see folk musicians with 1 1/2 sized bodhran type drums. They tended to beat and dance at the same time. Very clever! They used the flat of their right hand to make a complicated rythm, and a light 12 inch stick was folded between their left hand and the rim at a 45 degree angle. Meant that the left hand could then flick the stick in a constant light beat on the skin.
