Evelyn Grant's Weekend Drive Saturday 20 April 2019
Having a physics background can be a useful thing indeed if you are ace percussionist Alex Petcu. So the required sounds don't exist on conventional instruments? No problem, you just invent and build what you need. And that's what audiences can expect when he and fellow percussion adventurers Emma King and Brian Dungan take to the road with their kit bag of the usual suspects of the drum world, along with a fascinating array of metal, wood and string. Three young and energetic virtuosos cook up a menu of new music (a pity Beethoven never wrote for marimba) which will tickle tastebuds and defy expectations. Their appetite for exploring rhythmic influences from around the world – Flamenco, Afro-Cuban, Javanese gamelan – is healthy, hearty and irrepressible (please note: no sausages will be harmed in the making of this programme).
Tune in to the programme Saturday 21st September for your chance to win two tickets to a concert from Bangers and Crash Percussion Group at The Sugar Club, Leeson Street, Dublin 2 on Wednesday 2nd October followed by an overnight stay at the 5-star Merrion Hotel. Includes bed and breakfast (1 double room based on two people sharing) at the 5-star Merrion Hotel in Dublin City, one of the most luxurious 5-star hotels Dublin city centre has to offer. This elegant hotel in four restored Georgian townhouses is a 5-minute walk from the concert venue.
