The Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem is hosting a concert that will encompass both Celtic and country classics on Saturday night. Shay Tochner and Lilac Sheer will present "A Dove and Beyond," a show named after the pair's latest album. Tochner has played in a number of Israeli folk bands and has collaborated with big names like Shuly Nathan, Ruhama Raz and Suzy Miller. He plays guitar, harmonica and the American five-string banjo, with an emphasis on country and Irish music. Sheer is an English-speaking singer-songwriter with a professional background; she is the lead singer in the folk band Country Roads. The two began playing together last year and have taken the main stage at the annual Jacob's Ladder Folk Festival. The show will begin at 8:30 p.m. For more information, call (02) 561-1066.
