A number of shows have been announced for the National Concert Hall's autumn 'Perspectives' programme, which stages one-off shows on a certain theme that often involves a number of high-profile international musicians taking part.
The latest batch is no different, with the likes of Anna Calvi, Sam Amidon, Robert Forster and Adrian Crowley participating in a WB Yeats-themed show in September, while Stuart Staples of Tindersticks, Mick Harvey of The Bad Seeds and Jenny Beth of Savages are amongst a clutch of musicians performing a live homage to the work of film director David Lynch in November.
Acclaimed American jazz pianists Brad Mehldau and Jason Moran will also play the series.
