Dawud Wharnsby performed Saturday afternoon, November 12, 2005. A third generation Canadian with Scottish and British roots, Dawud Wharnsby’s recordings and reputation have established him as an institution in the realm of English language Nasheed (spiritual songs of a world-beat/folk style, drawn from Islamic cultural and musical tradition). Merging the Celtic/folk styles of his upbringing with sounds and embellishments of the Middle and Far East, Wharnsby’s unique lyrical style, warm voice and knack for penning catchy melodies have yielded a rich reception from his listeners world-wide. Wharnsby also presented two workshops at Lincoln Elementary School on November 14th.
