Pieter Wentzel

Pieter had a “classical” start with music, playing the piano. He sang in various choirs
and, much later, sang and played various instruments in several bands. In one of these
bands, a folkband, he discovered the Irish bodhrán as an expressive, accompanying
percussion instrument for Irish and Scottish traditional music.
Regularly visiting Irish sessions, being able to play with very skilled, also professional
musicians, developed his playing progressively. He likes to work with musicians from
different music styles, because it pushes his technique.
He has been playing the bodhrán for 15 years now and likes to accompany other
musicians, syncing with them and getting in to the groove together.
