Tales from the far Side 19.07.18 A second glimpse at the 2018 Sligo Jazz Festival

On this edition I have a second glimpse at this year's Sligo Summer School and Jazz Festival and I feature some of the appearing tutors and artists with music by Liane Carroll, Julian Siegel, Brian Byrne, Scott Flanigan, Linley Hamilton and The Olllam. And there is a live clip from last year's festival featuring Matthew Halpin, Soweto Kinch, Meilana Gillard and Cathal Roche.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.

A day without Jazz is boring!
