FILM Deep Fo­cus: Women in Film A new fix­ture for the Triskel , this three-day fes­ti­val is ded­i­cated to fe­male direc­tors in a re­mark­able pro­gramme of shorts and fea­tures, in­clud­ing the first-ever Ir­ish screen­ing on Sun­day of Wings (1966), by Soviet film-maker Larisa Shep­itko, which tells the story of a for­mer fe­male sec­ond World War fighter pi­lot (Maya Bul­gakova) strug­gling with her dis­ap­point­ing, un­event­ful life as a school prin­ci­pal. TRAD FES­TI­VAL Baltimore Fid­dle Fair, De­clan McCarthy, the ev­er­in­ven­tive cre­ative be­hind this most be­spoke of tra­di­tional/ folk gath­er­ings, has lined up an­other fine mix of mu­si­cians. Scan­di­na­vian duo Fru Sk­ager­rak share billing with Noel Hill, Frankie Gavin and Arty McG­lynn tonight. Watch out for many more ad­ven­tur­ous visi­tors, in­clud­ing China’s Ling Peng and Dmitri Fe­do­tov. JAZZ Kevin Brady/Bill Car­rothers/ Norma Win­stone Norma Wintsone is quite sim­ply one of the great­est jazz singers of the con­tem­po­rary era, a fear­less mu­si­cian who uses her voice like an in­stru­ment, but can also in­vest lyrics – her own and others’ – with depth and truth. To see her with ac­claimed US pi­anist Bill Car­rothers, bas­sist David Red­mond and drum­mer Kevin Brady, in in­ti­mate sur­round­ings, you will prob­a­bly have to ar­rive early or join the back of a long queue, or both. Don’t say you weren’t warned. SONG­WRITER Sam­ple An­swer Dublin-born, London-based Mau­rice O’Con­nor has long since shifted gears through his early Jamie T/Ed Sheeran pro­cliv­i­ties to a rather more re­fresh­ing hip-hop-pop style of song­writ­ing. Hear the pro­gres­sion as he em­barks on a brief tour of Ire­land to pro­mote his new EP, Col­li­sion. TECHNO The Build­ing So­ci­ety
