Thread Name: Bodhran history
Subject: RE: Help: Bodhran history

The Bodhran was first invented by the Scots in 1462 but they had a lot of trouble with it they claimed that playing it damaged there Knuckles so much that they could'nt hold there claymores any more, so they sold the idea to the Irish who being smarter than your average at the time thought it would work better with a skin on it.

and so it has been proved.
