A blasphemous line-up of the most shockingly good jazz acts playing in Ireland today, with a hugely diverse range of styles from traditional grooving to downright loud and funky.
Friday and Saturday night will see late-night DJ sets, with the sort of retro jazz dancefloor action which put the fear of God in readers of The Leitrim Observer in 1934
“Dear Irish colleens, hasten ye and crush
Jazz dancing, for it makes the Virgin Mary blush.
Root out such vile creations from out sod,
Come, banish these modes, so displeasing to God.
Patriotic daughters, it’s now up to you
To cease jazz dancing, for the sake of Róisín Dhu.”
