Pales­tinian per­cus­sion­ist to take cen­tre stage at con­cert in Din­gle

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A PALES­TINIAN per­cus­sion­ist, who made a mu­si­cal con­nec­tion with tour­ing Ir­ish mu­si­cians and dancers in Jerusalem, will take cen­tre stage at a con­cert in An Diseart on Sun­day night.

Raed Said was signed up at short no­tice by West Kerry-based Martin Schaerer to take the place of mu­si­cians who were pre­vented from trav­el­ling to Jerusalem to play at a con­cert with the ‘Wel­com­ing the Stranger’ project on a Cul­ture Ire­land spon­sored tour. Raid fit­ted in straight away and the mu­si­cal bond turned into a friend­ship.

Raid stud­ied per­cus­sion in Egypt, Jor­dan and Syria and has per­formed widely in Europe the US, and North­ern Africa. He will be ac­com­pa­nied by Martin Schaerer and Jon San­ders in this week­end’s con­cert. For drum­ming en­thu­si­asts he will hold a work­shop in The Per­cus­sion Work­shop on Green Street on Sun­day at 2pm. The work­shop costs €18 (€15 con­ces­sion price).

The con­cert will take place in the Fresco Room of An Diseart on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19 at 8pm. Tick­ets €10. Con­tact Martin at 0872808633
