Evelyn aims to drum up interest.

One of the world's most famous percussionists is appearing on Teesside at the end of the month.

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.
