Desie Hasson ~ Percussion & Vocals

Local man Desi Hasson, a recently retired School Principal, also supported the Black Nun Folk Club regularly for many years and performed floor spots with Riley Piddington on many occasions.
Desie wears a number of musical hats, so as well as playing Folk and Traditional material regularly with Scad the Beggars, he also hosts monthly Garage Sessions at his home, at which he plays a full drum kit and slightly heavier musical forms shall we say are practiced, where the sound of electric instruments would be more the norm.
However, with the Beggars, he's equally at home when, either rattling the Bodhran along with a bunch of Reels ....

... or, laying down a funky Conga groove behind a singer.
