Keith Donald is a renowned saxophone and clarinet player who played with some of the biggest names in Irish music, including Van Morrison, Ronnie Drew, The Moving Hearts and Christy Moore.
He has now turned his talents to theatre. Keith’s play, NewBliss, tells the story of his professional life from his first public performance at the age of ten to playing high profile gigs in North America, Africa, Europe and Ireland.
Through poetry, storytelling and music, Keith recounts the highs and lows of a career in the music industry spanning six decades, half of which was spent under the shadow of alcoholism.
NewBliss is an insight into the life of a musician, from pit orchestra gigs to pay the bills all the way through to sold out stadium tours.
It is also a deeply personal, heart-warming story of triumph over addiction.
Keith spent much of his childhood in the Glens and it is a place close to his heart.
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council present Keith’s show on November 20 as part of their arts programme. The show will perform at Cushendall Golf Club, Shore Road, Cushendall.
Tickets are available on the door £6/£5. For further information please contact 028 207 62024.
