Graham Hopkins and Robbie Malone Drum Hang

9th September @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


We are super excited to be welcoming Graham Hopkins (Glen Hansard, Dolores O’Riordan, Therapy?) and Robbie Malone (David Gray, The Corrs, Hothouse Flowers ) to The Pantry on the 9th September for a very special “Drum Hang”….an evening of drums, bass, conversation and great coffee in our Walled Garden!

Graham and Robbie will talk about their approach to music, their experiences playing live and in the studio, and of course the gear they use, while also treating us to some wonderful jams during the evening. Graham calls these ‘drum hangs’ rather than clinics or masterclasses, because he wants them to be as laid back and informal as possible. He encourages everyone to get involved and enjoy musician camaraderie, and to exchange their experiences with one another.
