‘I’m Ruairi… I am a percussionist, composer, presenter, documentary maker and educator.
Music has been a constant character in my life, ever since I first picked up a bodhran aged 4, then discovering the awesome world of percussion during my late teens in Cork, Ireland, where I grew up.
Today, I'm based in London and my work has taken me across the globe, from India and Indonesia to the Middle East and the USA, where I have worked with choirs, orchestras, bands, composers and everything inbetween, and I have been fortunate to collaborate with some truly incredible and inspiring musicians.
I do not believe there is any such thing as natural musical talent. Anyone can play an instrument, and make music with a bit of help and self belief. It is within us all. My mission - and passion - is to open up music in all it’s shapes and forms to as many people as possible. I believe this can help unlock the power of music as a positive force in life.’
