Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival now up and running

Really just a quick reminder that while the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival is now in full swing, it's not too late to browse through the programme and secure some tickets. (Though the online booking page does suggest that around half the events have sold out!)

Zoe Conway playing in CQAF in The John Hewitt

This afternoon, Zoƫ Conway wowed the packed crowd in The John Hewitt as she fiddled alongside accomplished guitarist and husband John McIntyre. Once again, their chemistry was on show as they worked through their impressive set. One friend in the audience described it as:

"Possibly most erotically charged and sweet performance I've heard. Her partner completely fixated on her. Beautiful voice."

Well worth going back to hear after her great performance in the January Out to Lunch festival. And a cultural first as it was Littl'un's inaugural attendance at a concert.

Chemistry between Zoe Conway (fiddle) and John McIntyre (guitar)

While waiting for Argos to rummage around their storeroom for some flat pack units yesterday lunchtime, I caught some of the Junior Circus from Belfast Community Circus School's performance in Arthur Street - part of the Festival of Fools that runs until Monday 4th. Excellent stuff.
