GIG of the weekend

Millstreet Music Fair, Cork, Sunday

The line-up for this one-day event in the spacious Green Glens Arena has something for nearly everybody, from full-blooded celtic soul brothers Van Morrison and Shane MacGowan to the glittery contemporary pop of The Corrs and the camp shenanigans of Bono's buddy Gavin Friday.

What a Combination

SOME alliances are just too brain-achingly bizarre to get a grip on.
For example, in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Robert de Niro played opposite Richard Briers.
Surely that couldn't really have happened. Gerry Adams sitting down for a cosy chat with Patrick Mayhew? Fair enough. Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat involved in a bit of cosy parley over tea and crumpet? Yeah, why not. But Travis Bickle meets Tom out of The Good Life? Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.

Legendary John Martin Plays Roisin Dubh

One of the classic singer/songwriters and musicians of the last thirty years, John Martyn, will play two exclusive gigs at Roisin Dubh on Monday and Tuesday, December 5th and 6th. If you haven't got a ticket by now, then it's time to start hustling because those on sale after the gigs were announced sold out in a record-breaking two hours. That's the kind of reputation John Martyn has.

GRAVE MARTYN

Salta il concerto per un infarto

Il secondo appuntamento della stagione al «Folk Club» in via Perrone è saltato all'ultimo momento. Sabato 8 ottobre, era infatti atteso John Martyn, il fuoriclasse inglese. Ma martedì scorso è stato colpito da infarto. Sembra non sia grave, ma per ora è ricoverato all'ospedale di Birmingham e ne avrà per chissà quanto. Il fatto è che, insieme alla data torinese, sono saltati la bellezza di quaranta concerti già fissati in tutta Europa.

Don't call it folk! John Martyn is 46, but he's not too old to kick up a stink if you dare lump him in with the finger-in-ear brigade. Paul Tingen dons his profanity-proof sou'ester to meet Britain's most eccentric and unique guitar stylist.
