With the release of her ‘Best of’ album, Circus Girl, and her opening slot on Cara Dillon’s current tour, American singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters will be building a solid fan-base here.

She will also be supporting Dillon at Omagh’s Strule Arts Centre tonight, Newry’s Town Hall tomorrow, Enniskillen’s Ardhowen Theatre on Thursday, Coleraine’s Riverside Theatre on Friday and Londonderry’s Millennium Forum on November 7.

Meanwhile, Charley Pride will always be popular here and a second Belfast show has been added to his tour, giving him a two-night residency at the Waterfront Hall on Monday and Tuesday, in addition to his gigs at Derry’s Millennium Forum next Thursday and Friday and at Omagh’s Leisure Centre on November 7.

And finally, the 2nd Guinness North Coast Folk Festival is this weekend at venues in Portstewart, Portrush and Portballintrae.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
