Donald McKay

drum promoDonald McKay was born in Paisley, Scotland and emigrated to Australia in 2012.  He has been playing and singing traditional Scottish songs for over 30 years and taught himself to play the bodhran over 20 years ago; honing his techniques in the sessions of Edinburgh, where he jammed with the likes of The Wrigley Sisters, Shooglenifty and the Battlefield Band.

Donald will run an informative and hands-on session exploring the history and basic techniques for playing this versatile Celtic drum and his unique approach will provide the most absolute of beginners with the skills required to begin gently accompanying a range of music styles.
