Music Night at St Josephs College, Lucan

Bodhrán Workshop St JosephsSt Josephs College in Lucan is a college which really nurtures the talent of their students and each year they have an abundance of annual events showcasing the various talents.

Tempo has been working alongside transition year students for the last 3 years teaching them how to play bodhráns and introducing them to Irish music.

During the month they held their annual music night which is packed full of performances.  Myself and the TY students were asked to play one of the slots and only after 4 weeks of tuition they were amazing, well done everyone.

We were delighted to be asked back again to facilitate another fun filled bodhrán workshop. It was a fantastic day in Sallins and I really enjoyed working with the wonderful children from the community.

Well done to everyone who helped organise the festival and thanks for having us back.
