Thread Name: Bodhran history
Subject: RE: Help: Bodhran history
As I heard it, the bodhran was 'invented' during the 1960's in Leicester, England...

Then again, John Logi Baird didn't invent the television - it was a fellow called Blumlein...

Many 'inventions' are developments of someone else's ideas - James Watt's steam engine, for example.

Thread creep? Perish the thought!! But there must be something more interesting than bodhrans!!!
