"Hi Tony, I am going to be in staying in Newcastle for a course in a few weeks time. I was wondering if you could tell me are there any Trad sessions on, Sunday to Thursday? If so could you tell me when & where?Many thanks Mike"
Thanks again, Mike. The dubbin that Michelle Stewart recommends is called Arctic Dubbin and has silicone and mink oil. But your caution is well taken ... I'll look to see if I can get the bodhran conditioning cream here in Canada.
Thanks, Mike. I presume the drums at Celtic Renaissance are MIP. They are "no name" on the website. I've emailed to inquire.
I think I might go this route and do some homemade upgrading like you did with your son's drum. I don't want to spend too much money on something for camping. I guess I could always use a pizza box or, as one of the other members suggested, the plastic lid of a cookie jar. But I like the idea of something more closely resembling a bodhran.
