Night of the liv­ing cul­ture vul­tures

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainment -

MAKE space in your di­aries for some post-Elec­tric Pic­nic cul­tural re­cu­per­a­tion: Cul­ture Night will re­turn to venues na­tion­wide on Septem­ber 21st. There’s plenty for mu­sic fans, and though the main fo­cus is on Dublin, there are lots of events around the coun­try. The cap­i­tal’s high­lights in­clude a gig with the ever-am­bi­tious Julie Feeney (be­low), who is tak­ing a break from prepa­ra­tions for her choral project to par­tic­i­pate in Sounds Alive, a ra­dio-based event in Ma­haffy House on North Great Ge­orge’s Street. Else­where, trad leg­end Dó­nal Lunny plays Ranelagh Arts Cen­tre, and Na Píobairí Uil­leann will per­form in the group’s newly ren­o­vated HQ on Hen­ri­etta Street.

Out­side the pale, DJ Donal Di­neen and trad mu­si­cian Maitiú O’Ca­saide will pro­vide a live sound­track for Span­ish pain­ter Guillermo Car­rion as he cre­ates a new work at St Can­ice’s Cathe­dral, Kilkenny. Car­low’s Café For­menti will be trans­formed into a 1920s speakeasy, with bluegrass from Brían and Diar­muid Glynn, and Gal­way Film Cen­tre hosts a doc­u­men­tary about fid­dle player Martin Hayes.
