TRAD Seán Keane Town Hall The­atre, West­port 8pm ¤25/¤22 west­portthe­atre.com Ca­herlis­trane na­tive, and scion of the widely ad­mired Keane clan of singers (by the time he reached his teens, he had col­lected thir­teen All-Ire­land medals in Fleadh Ceoil com­pe­ti­tions), Seán Keane’s song­book stretches from trad to folk and coun­try blues. Joined by Pat Coyne, Fer­gus Feely, David Doocey and Stephen Do­herty, Keane will draw from his most re­cent re­lease, his 10th solo al­bum, New Day Dawn­ing, and odds are that fans of his Gal­way to Grace­land won’t be dis­ap­pointed ei­ther. SL ART Struc­tures and Forms Nag Gallery, Base­ment, 59 Fran­cis St, Dublin na­gallery.ie The first in a se­ries of shows high­light­ing works by gallery artists. This in­stal­ment fea­tures large works by Ian Charlesworth and Gareth Jenk­ins, with sculp­tures by Katharine West and Rory Tangney. Sad to say, there is a some­thing of a vale­dic­tory air to this cy­cle of shows, as gal­lerist and art con­sul­tant (and mu­sic pro­ducer) Mark St John El­lis is ad­vanc­ing a plan to re­lo­cate the nag gallery to a main­land Euro­pean lo­ca­tion – not Ber­lin, he says. Dur­ing his time at the RHA’s Ash­ford Gallery, El­lis had an bril­liant track record for high­light­ing and bring­ing through very promis­ing young artists and he’s main­tained the qual­ity at nag, a small but per­fectly pro­grammed and cu­rated space.
