HOUSE Melodic Two old favourites play Melodic’s night out in the venue for­merly known as An­drew’s Lane. When it comes to deep, dark house and techno, Span­ish duo Los Su­ruba are at the top of their game, with much-ad­mired re­leases and their ANTS party ready to rule at Ibiza’s Ushuaia over the sum­mer. Ian O’Dono­van is the Lim­er­ick man with the ris­ing pro­file thanks to re­leases for Sasha’s Last Night on Earth, John Dig­weed’s Bedrock, Chris­tian Smith’s Tronic and Adam Beyer’s Drum­code la­bels. Sup­port from Dave Mor­ris­sey with Cul­ture Shock and Squid Inc in the other room. SUL­TAN SWINGS BY Mark Knopfler and Band Since the re­tire­ment of Dire Straits, gui­tarist and singer Mark Knopfler has forged a solo path that em­braces cin­e­matic/rootsy rhythms, and gui­tar licks that flow like a calm, un­in­ter­rupted stream. Will the mu­sic be too smooth, how­ever, for such a large venue? The fans say no! JAZZ Barrow River Arts Fes­ti­val The an­nual any­thing goes fes­ti­val on the banks of the Barrow is one of the hid­den gems of the mu­si­cal cal­en­dar, con­sis­tently bring­ing in­ter­na­tional names and di­verse pro­gram­ming to the stately sur­round­ings of Bor­ris House. Cu­rated by heavy­weight hus­band-and-wife team, free jazz bassist Barry Guy and early mu­sic vi­o­lin­ist Maya Hom­burger, this year’s ros­ter in­cludes ad­ven­tur­ous ECM vo­cal­ist Sav­ina Yana­tou and ac­claimed Amer­i­can pi­anist Mar­i­lyn Crispell.
