Roots/Folk Music 29/1/10

Since her last successful gig at the Grand Opera House, Beth Nielsen Chapman has dealt with the kind of health scare that would have put most of us off following any career, let alone one in the public eye.

Thankfully, this most humble of souls has not let a brain tumour stand in her way, and now the American singer/songwriter is heading back to the Belfast venue on Wednesday.

This Back To Love Tour, with special guests Eilidh Patterson and Ben Glover, will feature many of her classic hits along with some great new material.

Meanwhile, you will be spoilt for choice on Thursday with the late Michael Jackson’s flamboyant guitarist, Jennifer Batten, playing at the Black Box on the same night as the opening concert of Feile An Earraigh (028 9031 3440 or www.feilebelfast.com). The Transatlantic Sessions at the Waterfront features Sara Watkins, Dan Tyminski, Bruce Molsky, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Eddi Reader, Karen Matheson, Cara Dillon and Aly Bain.

And on Sunday, don’t forget the Belfast 4 Haiti fundraiser at the Limelight and The Bittersweets at the Black Box

You're tired of compromising for the sake of a demanding partner. Being more assertive is critical to the survival of your relationship. You should have your desires met, too.More
