All FALL Down…

Well as the Summer slowly sneaks away we start to notice the evenings getting shorter which must mean it’s time for jazz nights. Before turning our attention to all the wonderful concerts that are coming up over the next couple of months we should reflect on the outstanding event of the Summer, The Sligo Jazz Festival. Eddie Lee is a legend in that part of the world and he and his team do an outstanding job in organising the whole event. (More Below)

The Limerick Jazz Festival will return at the end of September. The organising team is lead by the hardest working man in jazz, John Daly. Last year was always going to be a tough year to follow considering the improved funding that was available for Limerick as City of Culture.  (More Below)

Larry Coryell played a really touching concert in The Sugar Club, Dublin on the 13th September. Joined by Dave Redmond on Bass and Kevin Brady on Drums. (More Below)

He is launching his new project in Dublin at JJ Smyth’s on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th September. (More Below)
