SOUNDS FROM A SAFE HAR­BOUR Cork, Sep­tem­ber 14-17

Bon Iver, The Na­tional and Lisa Han­ni­gan head­line the sec­ond in­car­na­tion a fes­ti­val that’s nicely po­si­tioned to ease us into au­tumn. Most of the big gigs at the city’s Opera House are sold out al­ready, but in their wake comes a flotilla of smaller events at venues such as St Lukes, Cough­lans and Cyprus Av­enue. Safe Har­bour also bur­nishes Cork’s rep­u­ta­tion as a mu­sic city, with the jazz fes­ti­val a few weeks later cel­e­brat­ing its 40th year.

STEELY DAN

3Arena, Oc­to­ber 28 and 30

The re­cent death of Wal­ter Becker robbed Ir­ish fans of a chance to see the orig­i­nal duo in ac­tion, but Don­ald Fa­gen has pledged to ful­fill the dates of what’s sure to be an emo­tional tour. He’ll also have a top-class band with him to play such clas­sics as ‘Rikki Don’t Lose That Num­ber’ and ‘Reelin in the Years’. There’s even a dou­ble bonus for fans of ‘70s rock in that sup­port is from the Doo­bie Broth­ers.

ALI­SON MOYET Oc­to­ber

While Ali­son Moyet does have a new al­bum, the vast ma­jor­ity of fans who go to see her at Cork Opera House (Oct 27) and the Olympia (Oct 28) will be yearn­ing for a con­cert filled with her clas­sic hits. And the 56-year-old has no short­age of big tunes to choose from. Ex­pect a mass singalong for the likes of ‘Don’t Go’, ‘In­vis­i­ble’ and her cover of ‘That Ole Devil Called Love’.
