About the tutor:

London Born Tad Sargent, whose family roots hail from Castlebar in county Mayo, started playing music at a young age on the piano.  He started playing the bodhrán in 2002 after re-discovering his childhood love for Irish music. Learning about Irish music took years of attending sessions run by the London Irish banjo player Mick O’Connor.  His Bodhran and Bouzouki playing can be heard on recordings and films including the 2010 film “Burke and Hare” (John Landis), Barulle’s album “Mananans Cloak”.
