Especially for for Cruinniú na nÓg 2021, Áras Chrónáin Creative Team in partnership with members of renowned musical group KÍLA, invite you to ‘Rithim na nGael’ – a traditional Irish music percussion experience!
Bodhrán and percussion is the very heartbeat of Irish music. The Rithim na nGael workshop offers participants the unique opportunity – under the experienced eye of some of the world’s best bodhrán players – to get their hands on an Irish bodhrán.
Music, in particular rhythm, has a powerful impact. It is important that children have the opportunity to experience, learn and express themselves through the creative arts. Áras Chrónáin and KÍLA have spent many years fostering this ethos in their music classes, workshops and performances.
Workshops take place on Wednesday 9th June 2021, 11am-2.30pm; and Friday 11th June, 11am-2.30pm outdoors at Aras Chrónáin. Each workshop will host a maximum of 15 participants, the workshops are suitable for 8-16 year-olds.
Please register for the workshops by visiting Áras Chrónáin online. Children can register for both workshops and will be provided with a bodhrán but are also welcome to bring their own percussion instruments.
A performance will be held at Áras Chrónáin and streamed virtually via the Áras Chrónáin YouTube channel and website for Cruinniú na nÓg on June 12th.
