Ok ! time to confess ...The Banjo as you can now see... is a model ....didnt any one wonder ? hee heee (wicked giggle )
A lovely sunny day here ,now the frost has cleared,Maurice rang from work ,in pain ,I made him an apointment at the emergency doctor,he has a kidney infection, he is home now ,So after making him comfortable with painkillers ,a hot water bottle and tea ,I put two loads of washing out , I then set off with my trolley for my shopping and Maurices script for antibiotics
I do hope I am forgiven for teasing you about the banjo? Maurice does have three (real )guitars and a bodrhan and yes he does play them ,and has a lovely singing voice especially the lovely old Irish songs many of which he learned as a child from his Mum and other family members
The Bodhran is the traditional Irish Drum. Made from a round wooden frame, with an animal skin( quite often goat skin) stretched over it. The bodhrán (pronounced bow-rahn) is the heartbeat of Irish traditional music, and is a hugely popular. Capable of surprisingly complicated rhythms, when played well it can really lift the music. You don’t need to be able to read music to play; get yourself a Bodhrán and you will soon be able to join in with the music.
You play the drum with a tipper ,threaded through the fingers, and by rotating the wrist.
I hope you are all having a restful Saturday keep warm everyone with love from ....
Thanks Debbie for todays siggy ..
