Jazz Ireland Blog

The blog is dedicated to Irish Jazz and to the fans, musicians and venues that support it. if you have any content you would like to add to the blog please get in touch.

The Hot Box is a new radio show coming to you from www.jazzireland.ie, and presented by Donald Helme. The show focusses on setting the best of Irish jazz within the international language to which it belongs. The focus is on enjoyability, and will doubtless evolve as it goes on.

Donald Helme presented Jazz Alley on RTE Lyric fm from the station’s first week on air, each week for the following 17 years, when the show was axed, leaving a large gap in representation of jazz on the national airwaves.

​What is Jazz Ireland and what does it do?

Jazz Ireland is a brand new website for Irish Jazz. We want to provide a dedicated space where musicians, fans and venues can connect. The main function behind Jazz Ireland is to list every jazz event and venue in the country in one place.

  • Musicians can manage their own events, sell their CDs and find venues to perform in all around Ireland.
  • Fans can suggest events, tell us about venues and find events anywhere.
  • Business owners can advertise their venues in the directory and make themselves available to a larger audience.

Aside from all that we will promote the content on the site through Social Networks, Search Engine Optimisation, newsletter campaigns, the blog and the shop.
