Bush Instruments

Making the instruments used in Bush music back in the early times was easy and fun to do. Because the early settlers couldn’t get regular instruments they were creative in making their own from items found around the farm and the house. Bones, Bodhrans, bush bass, spoons and of course the lagerphone all found a place in Bush music alongside the more traditional fiddles, accordions, whistles, harmonicas, banjos and guitars.

All these instruments are relatively easy to construct and some are available already built and ready to use in a band.
