Alleys & Rivers of the East: Exhibition & Short Film by Jonathan Brennan

Thursday 1 Aug - Friday 30 Aug

‘Alleys and Rivers of the East’ is a series of artworks by artist Jonathan Brennan on the theme of alleyways, greenways and rivers in East Belfast. Comprising works on paper and unique multi-photograph compositions, the exhibition will also feature Brennan’s short film Alleys of the East. The subject of alleys, or entries, and the ways in which we use them has intrigued Brennan from his arrival in Belfast. Exhibiting some of the alley pieces in 2017, he has since turned his attention to the hidden rivers of East Belfast, following them under bridges and down culverts as they snake through our semi-urban landscape. The result is a fascinating mix of monotypes, cyanotypes, etchings, photographs and video.

Talking Blues - Ronnie Greer in conversation and in performance
EastSide Visitor Centre
THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT

A special, not-to-be-repeated, evening of talk and music featuring Ronnie Greer, one of the key figures in blues music in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.

In this unique interview/concert evening, Ronnie will enjoy a relaxed chat with fellow musician Anthony Toner, followed by a short blues jam featuring the two guitarists trading licks on some blues classics.


In conversation, Ronnie will trace the outline of his career and share some insights into the factors that helped make Belfast one of the true cradles of the blues in Europe. Along the way, he will discuss some of the world-class performers who helped to establish the blues scene in the city, and share memories of the iconic venues like The Maritime, The Pound and Sammy Houston’s that offered a platform for live performances that were to change the city’s musical landscape.

As one of the justifiable legends of the Northern Ireland music scene, Ronnie is also one of its favourite performers. His fingers have added passion and fire to some of the greatest blues bands in the country, including for a time the legendary Jim Daly Blues Band, Blues Experience and a host of others. As a sideman and frontman, Ronnie has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the business – including the likes of Dr. John, Lowell Fulson, Phil Guy, Johnny Mars, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee and many more.

He released his first album, A Lifetime With the Blues in 2015, a recording that featured contributions from Grainne Duffy, Ken Haddock, Anthony Toner, Kyron Bourke and others - and followed it with The Jazz Project two years later – both of those albums attracted 4-Star reviews in Jazz Journal Magazine.

In October of this year, he and his band and special guests recorded a brand new live album, due for release in spring of 2020.

Titanic The Musical
Titanic Exhibition Centre

In the final hours of 14th April 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank. It was one of the most tragic disasters of the 20th Century, in which 1517 men, women and children lost their lives.

Now, more than 100 years later, Belfast Operatic Company bring you the show they said couldn’t be done. How can you sing and dance about such a tragedy?

Maury Yeston and Peter Stones’ Broadway production of Titanic The Musical did just that, winning 5 Tony Awards (Including Best Musical, Book and Score) as Titanic finally arrived in New York. It was a similar tale in the Grand Opera House in 2005 when the Belfast Operatic Company staged the Irish Premiere of the show, sweeping the boards at the Association of Irish Musical Societies annual ceremony, and thrilling audiences and critics alike – a success they repeated in 2012 for the centenary of the ship’s sinking at a very special gala performance. It is with great delight that this year they will be bringing the show home to the Titanic Quarter, just a stone’s throw away from where the ship was built and launched.

Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Titanic The Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of her passengers who each boarded with stories and personal ambitions of their own.
