CLAS­SI­CAL Mia Cooper/Kather­ine Hunka/Ioana Petcu-Colan/ He­lena Wood St Ann’s Church, Dawson St, Dublin 8pm ¤20, ¤15/¤10 and on tour un­til Sat 29th mu­sic­net­ Mu­sic Net­work’s lat­est tour brings to­gether vi­o­lin­ists from the first desks of four Ir­ish or­ches­tras – the RTÉ NSO’s He­lena Wood, the RTÉCO’s Mia Cooper, the Ul­ster Orches­tra’s Ioana Petcu-Colan, and the ICO’s Kather­ine Hunka — is a credit to the in­flu­ence of im­mi­gra­tion. Only Petcu-Colan was born in Ire­land, to Ro­ma­nian par­ents who moved to Cork in the 1970s. At the heart of the pro­gramme is Ian Wil­son’s Quat­tro Sta­gione, spe­cially com­mis­sioned for the tour. MD SINGER-SONG­WRITER Al Ste­wart Vicar St Dublin 7.30pm ¤47 tick­et­mas­; also Thurs, Cork Opera House, ¤40 cork­op­er­a­ In the late 1960s, Glas­gow-born Al Ste­wart epit­o­mized the UK ‘bed­sit’ singer-song­writer scene; he crossed over into the main­stream in the mid-‘70s with al­bums such as Year of the Cat and Time Pas­sages, but lat­terly has re­vis­ited the kind of ma­te­rial that made his name a by­word for singer-song­writer qual­ity. In­ter­est­ing fact: Ste­wart played at the very first Glas­ton­bury Fes­ti­val in 1970. At­ten­dance? 1,000. Ticket price? £1. TCL
