Evelyn aims to drum up interest.
On August 24, Evelyn Glennie, who is profoundly deaf and uses vibrations when playing music, is visiting the Tees Barrage for a special audio-visual concert.
Spirit of the Celts will be led by Ms Glennie, Northumbrian folk musician Kathryn Tickell, flautist Dave Heath, and clog-dancing group The Fosbrooks.
Ms Glennie said: "I am so looking forward to bringing my Celtic show to the beautiful Tees Valley."
Ms Glennie has been awarded numerous accolades, including the OBE and honorary Doctorate of Music from Durham University.
* Tickets for the concert are available at pounds 15 and pounds 12 by calling 01642 777778. A hundred free child tickets are also being offered - to qualify quote "Kids for Free" when booking. Proceeds from the show will be donated to the Butterwick Hospice.
