Bodhrán – Felix Morgenstern

While Felix’ class will cover different bodhrán-playing techniques suitable for practitioners of all levels, including double- and single-ended sticking patterns and ornamentation, the primary emphasis of this workshop will be on introducing participants to different approaches of rhythmic accompaniment in Irish traditional music, listening carefully to the individual phrasing and contour of tunes. In particular, we will explore using the skin-hand effectively to create tonal variation in dialogue with a harmonic accompanist, as well as subtle bass-lines that will be supportive to a melody instrumentalist in both session- and concert-settings.
