August 2017

Big news this month is that Dublinjazz.ie has teamed up with Bagots Hutton to create a new music venue in the heart of Dublin city. Bagots Hutton opened in its new location back in January this year. The owners, Giovanni Viscardi and Brian Deery have been presenting live music in a restaurant environment until now. Going forward, Dominic Reilly of Dublinjazz.ie and Teddy D Promotions will exclusively program music into the venue 3-4 nights a week. The music room will be known as Bagots Hutton Live.

Dublinjazz.ie will be presenting the sensational Irish singer /songwriter SÍOMHA and her band in Bagots Hutton Live on the 25tth & 26 August. Since returning to Ireland last Autumn SÍOMHA has been receiving critical praise from all directions. Her single Fly made it into the list of top ten tracks played on RTE Radio 1 in 2016. SÍOMHA released her current hit July Red Sky on the 1st of July this year and it has gone viral on Facebook ranking up 1.7 million views so far!

The gigs will start at 8.30pm and tickets priced €13.00 can be purchased from Eventbrite.
