SINGER-SONG­WRITER Ben Watt Trio Fol­low­ing the re­lease of his el­e­gant, wist­ful al­bum, Hen­dra, ear­lier this year, Watt (right) & friends ( in­clud­ing gui­tarist Bernard But­ler, no less) plays his first Ir­ish gig in many years. Ex­pect re­cent songs, vin­tage gems, ironic be­tween-song com­ments, and, if avid fans are lucky, one or two Ev­ery­thing But the Girl-era tunes. JAZZ Maya Hom­burger/Barry Guy Bassist Barry Guy and Baroque vi­o­lin­ist Maya Hom­burger are no strangers to Ir­ish au­di­ences, hav­ing made their home to­gether here for many years. But live per­for­mances by the hus­band & wife duo here are rare, so the lat­est in­stall­ment of the Lit­tle Mu­seum’s imag­i­na­tive Santa Rita se­ries is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to hear two unique and fear­less mu­si­cians of in­ter­na­tional stature. ART For God and Ul­ster: Photographs by Gor­don Ash­bridge Gor­don Ash­bridge grew up as a mem­ber of Belfast’s Christian evan­gel­i­cal move­ment. He worked as a fire­fighter for 30 years and now teaches pho­tog­ra­phy. Ash­bridge has made sev­eral sub­stan­tial se­ries of works, all of which ex­plore “our ba­sic, and of­ten frus­trated, de­sire for a sense of com­mu­nity”. Here he in­cludes works from his fam­ily al­bum de­pict­ing 1950s Belfast. THE­ATRE The Locked Room The only way is up for aerial the­atre. Or is it? For the past few years, in­no­va­tors of the genre, equipped with breathtaking ac­ro­batic skills, have sought to take the form in new di­rec­tions. Ni­amh Creely’s Ether Pro­duc­tions have com­bined psy­cho­log­i­cal fairy­tales with pole dance and rib­bon rou­tines, and a float­ing play­ground for a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic fan­tasy. Now Creely and Jonathan Walsh in­tro­duce spo­ken word for a comic ex­is­ten­tial cri­sis, a first for the company, as is the in­clu­sion of an armed nu­clear de­vice.
