ART Mary Lohan: Dreams of Land­scape Hamil­ton Gallery, Sligo May 7-Jun 6 hamil­ton­ As part of a se­ries of ex­hi­bi­tions mark­ing the 150th an­niver­sary of the birth of WB Yeats, Mary Lohan shows her re­cent land­scapes, some based di­rectly on Sligo and some else­where. As Lohan sees it, Yeats char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally sums up a land­scape in just a few words, al­low­ing us imag­i­na­tive space to oc­cupy it. Her spare, clear, coastal views aspire to do that as well. THEATRE Cathe­dral Arts Quar­ter Fes­ti­val Var­i­ous. Un­til May 10 Belfast’s his­toric cen­tre hosts its 16th an­nual fes­ti­val with a se­lec­tion of stal­wart tour­ing shows and lo­cal pro­duc­tions, in­clud­ing a typ­i­cally provoca­tive new play by Martin Lynch. My English Tongue, My Ir­ish Heart (Wa­ter­front Stu­dio, 7.30pm) brings to­gether a pair of 21st-cen­tury em­i­grants from ei­ther side of the bor­der and re­li­gious divide. In­trigu­ingly based on an aca­demic study of Ir­ish lit­er­a­ture, it also boasts the op­por­tu­nity for the au­di­ence to get in­volved. Also show­ing this evening is Lan­ci­a­tore: The Jug­gling Man (Belfast Cir­cus School, 7.45pm), a re­ces­sion com­edy set among a gang of gam­blers in me­dieval Italy. FOLK/ROCK Laura Mar­ling A few Mer­cury Mu­sic Prize nom­i­na­tions, a gar­landed ca­reer, re­spect from her peers, a smart and ego­less de­meanour . . . the won­der­ful Laura Mar­ling (be­low) has got it go­ing on. Sup­port act is Gill Landry, some­time mem­ber of Old Crow Medicine Show, who also comes highly rec­om­mended.
