US Premiere of Galician Bagpiper, Mercedes Peón

November 28, 2017

On December 8, Mercedes Peón will perform at Elebash Recital Hall as a part of the Graduate Center’s Live @ 365 series. This is the US premiere of this award winning multi-instrumentalist. Peón is a master bagpiper, singer, and percussionist. She has collaborated with musicians such as Xosé Manuel Budino, Manu Chao and Carlos Núñez, and the Guardian has called her “one of the Spanish music scene’s true originals.”

At her upcoming concert, “Ancient and Contemporary Songs of Galicia Spain,” she will perform both the traditional music of Galicia and her own original songs, based in this tradition.

Tickets are $25, or FREE with a CUNY ID! CUNY students from any campus may email gcevents@gc.cuny.edu to reserve a ticket. Just present your ID at the door.
