Dublin Guitar Duets - Part 5: Tommy Halferty

I had the absolute pleasure to sit down with Tommy Halferty and shoot a new "Dublin Guitar Duets" Episode with him.

Tommy is a living history book of Irish Jazz and one of its most important contributors. It was so much fun and I hope some of his former students as well as everyone else who has an interest in the Irish Jazz scene can get something out of this one. It was so much fun to do this Episode and I am super happy to have captured some of his stories and memories of Irish Jazz!

Talking Jazz with John Daly

A Letter from Limerick

John Daly recalls the modest beginnings of a great jazz festival

When asked by Jazz Ireland to do a blog about the Limerick Jazz Festival, I thought it would be fitting to add some background history of what has been happening, jazz-wise, in Limerick over the past 38 years or so.

Limerick Jazz was founded in 1981 by a core group of dedicated jazz followers, who set in motion a jazz society which they probably never imagined would still be alive and well all these years later. Now recognised as the longest running jazz society on the island of Ireland, it has also proved to be one of the most productive. Having been quoted as “carrying well above its weight” on more than one occasion, it has brought some of the biggest names in jazz to the mid-west. Without the vision of the founders it’s hard to imagine jazz of this standard being a regular occurrence in the City.

Jazz Mine No. 209 Saturday 25th. May 2019 incl. Lew Tabackin Quartet
