SONG COL­LEC­TOR Sam Lee & The Out of Town­ers This Mer­cury Mu­sic Award-nom­i­nated Bri­tish folk singer (right) was due to per­form in Ire­land late last year but never made it over; he makes amends now with se­lected gigs, and those with a lik­ing for folk culled from the tra­di­tions of Ro­many gypsy and Ir­ish Trav­eller com­mu­ni­ties will find much to like. JAZZ Tommy Halferty and Friends Ev­ery year, Derry-born gui­tarist Tommy Halferty plays a ben­e­fit con­cert to raise money for the street chil­dren of Burk­ina Faso, where his wife An­nie works as a vol­un­teer teacher. This year, giv­ing it up for an ex­cel­lent cause, are the gui­tarist’s Brazil­ian quar­tet with Latin drum mas­ter Conor Guil­foyle, pi­anist Greg Fel­ton and bassist Derek Whyte, plus sup­port from the Mer­rion Gates Jazz Band.
