Mick Broderick, of the Broderick’s of East Galway, grew up in Rathcoole, Co. Dublin where he learned mandolin for a number of years under the tutilage of local musician Tom Moran. Some years later he participated in the traditional music course of Ballyfermott Senior College entitled ‘Ceotloir’. Here Mick encountered his musical peers for the first time and set out on a voyage of self discovery which saw him, with the help of Clondalkin based Myles Farrell, take up the bouzouki. Having found a deep affinity with this instrument, Mick quickly became well known on the Irish music scene and although quite a late arrival soon made up for lost time.
Having recorded with various artists including Gavin Whelan, Zoe Conway, Bill Whelan (Riverdance) and Neil Lyons, it is with the band “Slide” that he is best known.
Instructor – Bouzouki
