12. Bodhran

My dad has always been the musical kind. Something neither my brother or I get from him but I often think my tremor might make me a natural drummer.


With Ned Lawton

I don't think I can do my dad justice in a short paragraph so I won't try. But he is 1/3 of the family unit that keeps me afloat and positive. His band Pitmatics play folk with a difference.


I've grown up with Dad playing the bodhran, the Irish drum, and love it's sound. He makes it look so easy.

Well at least I know now.
