Tales from the far Side 23.05.19 Introducing Westport Jazz

On this edition I would like to introduce you to Westport Jazz, an initiative with the aim to bring more Jazz to Co. Mayo and I talk to Elizabeth Healy one of the organizers about the upcoming gig if the RBG Trio (Dave Redmond, Kevin Brady + Meilana Gillard) and further plans. You can hear Music from the three artists and a selection of Elizabeth's favourite Jazz records. Introducing WESTPORT JAZZ -A Jazz fanfare from the West!

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.
