LIVE MUSIC


Cyprus Avenue, Caroline St. Charlie Winston 8pm, adm €15

Charlie Winston has released his new single "The Weekend" has just that airy sound, the easy up-tempo, the happy celebration atmosphere. The song is about exactly what the title promises: how we all break away from our everyday lives for the weekend and become another being who just wants to dance. The casual songwriting, the cool arrangement with the slap guitar and the casual-smooth beat - all testify to the style will of the British and the focus on the aesthetically essential. The son of a British folk family has always made music throughout his life playing virtually no role in the genre. He plays reggae and writes film music, he sings chansons as well as he is on the stage as a crooner, he also deals with Indian folklore as well as jazz or minimal music.

Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place Heroes and Villains 10 am, adm free

Heroes and Villains, a selection of works from the collection, explores the archetypes of good and bad characters, and the middle ground between them. While some heroes and villains are easily identifiable through certain recognisable traits, it is often the case that these categories are not so self-contained. Depending on the contexts of time and place, someone who is once celebrated as a hero may be transformed into a villain, or vice versa. Indeed, these shifting contexts can act as formative influences, with artists and writers alike recognising the power of settings and scenarios on the decisions we make.
