Find­ing cul­tural things in un­ex­pected set­tings is one of the great charms of sum­mer arts fes­ti­vals around Ire­land, and Sligo’s Cairde is no dif­fer­ent. Tonight ( July 15th) you can catch Bot­tlenote Mu­sic’s some­times haunt­ing, some­times un­set­tling and al­ways evoca­tive The Walls Have Ears ( be­low) in one of two per­for­mances. A sell- out at the Dublin Fringe, the show asks you to wan­der through an aban­doned house hear­ing mu­sic played live by Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional artists, in­clud­ing Seán MacEr­laine, Shane La­timer, Clau­dia Sch­wab, Phil Min­ton and Jen­nifer Wal­she. Ex­pect quiet mo­ments and ex­per­i­men­tal ex­plo­sions of sound. While the Dublin shows were in a di­lap­i­dated Ge­or­gian house on North Great Ge­orge’s Street, Sligo’s per­for­mances are in a town­house on John Street, known to the lo­cals as, sim­ply, Breega Mur­phy’s House. Dis­cover what lies within at 6pm and 8pm, tick­ets ¤ 15 (¤ 7.50 conc). caird­e­fes­ti­val. com
