Ancient strings and fabulous things
The Centre @ Halton welcomed the celebrated African Kora player and vocalist Doudou Cissoko along with his top quality support band for a concert on Saturday 11th May .
Doudou had already performed with his musicians at the 02 Arena in London and on the BBC TV playing for Jools Holland. The Centre was delighted to be able to work with Spot On Lancashire’s Touring Network to put on this event. It was no surprise that this was a sell out event.
A great evening’s entertainment and music was really appreciated by an audience of all ages, and these are some of the comments from members of the audience:
“ Wow! What an amazing gig to happen in Halton.”
“Great to have the opportunity to go to a concert like this that I would usually have to travel some distance to hear, e.g. Manchester. Excellent evening’s entertainment …”
“What a fantastic event. The venue was great for this. So good to have world music so close to home. Wonderful. “
“ So fortunate to have the Centre and the fab entertainment on our doorstep. Doudou helped me to get in the mood for a summer of festivals.”
“ Outstanding show. More of this in Halton please!”
