A feel-good celebration of creativity, culture, diversity and community with high quality music performances from Irish-based and international acts.
A FREE, family-friendly and alcohol-free world music festival, Hotter than July is back in Smithfield Square this Sunday 28th July, celebrating the cultural diversity in Dublin city through music and dance from around the world. Everybody welcome!
MMCD was formed when, after many long jam and noise-making sessions, married couple Eoin O'Halloran and Yuzuha O'Halloran decided to spice things up and add a drummer into the mix: Hugh Denman. Having all previously played and toured together as part of bands Atsch and Parallel Society, a unique and personal sound was quickly forged from the first rehearsal.
July sees a special summer edition of IMC’s Signal Series, featuring some of the brightest lights in jazz from Northern Ireland. The Tommy Halferty Organ Trio make this their only Dublin stop on a nationwide tour which celebrates the late guitarist John Abercrombie. Jazz vocalist Katharine Timoney joins them on the bill with her quintet, which includes some of Ireland’s finest jazz musicians.
Improvising pianist and composer Izumi Kimura’s residency will explore the connection between environmental and musical sounds, by creating field recordings and live music that interact and play with each other. The soundscape of Dún Laoghaire is very rich, and every sound contains space, energy and movements of people, culture and nature.
The Dirty Jazz club have been a massive part of the Dublin Jazz scene for over a decade. Their focus is on the exploration and deconstruction of songs and an emphasis on creating a depth and textural soundscape on the melody, form and feel of the tunes.
