Artist Category: Music
Artist Type: Folk
[F] Mance Grady has amazed many with his mastery of the traditional Irish frame drum, the bodhran, as well as with his skills on other ethnic percussion. Rhythm is the tie that binds us all which Mance has shown in workshops and clinics on the bodhran. Venues have ranged from schools to festivals, including the Berklee College of Music (where he shared the stage with Giovanni Hildago, Victor Mendoza and Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez) and ICONNS Music Festival. Mance has performed with a virtual who's who in the Celtic music genre in his 39 plus years as a Celtic percussionist. When not performing with specific bands, Mance continues to be a guest artist both in performances and in the recording studio. His organic feel for rhythm allows him to journey into different musical genres and he loves to bring the bodhran into new musical territory. Performances can be arranged to include other musicians in various configurations for such events as concerts, weddings, private parties, and corporate functions.
