"Andy Kruspe's bodhrán presentations open the player's mind to a deeper analysis of form, style and structure and bring participants on a journey from basic rudiments to high level proficiency. Andy's attention to detail is phenomenal and his understanding of the technicalities of bodhrán performance is simply world-class.”
