ART Sir Hugh Lane (1875-1915): Dublin’s Le­gacy and Loss Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane, Dublin Un­til Oct 4 hugh­lane.ie

Notes on the Lusi­ta­nia Sir­ius Arts Cen­tre, Cobh, Co Cork May 2-24 sir­iusarts­cen­tre.ie The Lusi­ta­nia was tor­pe­doed on the af­ter­noon of May 7, 1915. One of the some 1,200 peo­ple who lost their lives in the con­tro­ver­sial sink­ing was Sir Hugh Lane, and the gallery that bears his name re­mem­bers him with a show doc­u­ment­ing his pa­tron­age of living artists at the time. Much nearer the site of the dis­as­ter, Sir­ius takes an in­trigu­ing ap­proach by invit­ing artists to ex­plore the lives of some of the vic­tims. Ai­dan Dunne in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned jazz pro­gramme has to get up on stage and, you know, per­form jazz. This year, there are 20 band­leaders from nine coun­tries play­ing for free in the Kevin Barry Room. Who knows what stars of the fu­ture may be among them?


Mana­hat­tan Trans­fer were the toast of the grown-up, din­ner party set in the 1970s, and if prawn cock­tails, side­burns and the Cold War can make a come­back, then why not the quar­tet who brought us The Boy from New York City and Chan­son D’Amour? The line-up may have changed over the years but they still have the moves, the flaw­less har­monies and the daz­zling Broad­way smiles.
