Sligo’s Cairde Summer Festival, which began on Sunday, 3 July, continues until 10 July. Combining music, dance, theatre, visual art and street entertainment, the festival takes place in various Sligo venues, including the Model, McGarrigle’s and the Source wine bar.
Performers at this year’s festival include Lisa Hannigan (6 July), Tupela (7 July) and the Bahh Band (8 July). A performance by Dónal Lunny with the singer Yungchen Lhamo has been cancelled due to the latter’s ill-health – it is hoped the event will be rescheduled for later in the year.
The festival will also feature performances of Anton Chekhov’s play The Bear (pictured), directed by Caroline Lynch.
