Curated by Aengus Hackett Music, our jazz party featuring the finest of local and visiting musicians.

"Billie Holiday, born April 7, 1915 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was a superstar of her day. She first rose to prominence in the 1930’s with a unique style that reinvented the conventions of modern singing and performance. More than 80 years after making her first recording Billie’s legacy continues to embody what is elegant and cool in contemporary music.

Holiday’s complicated life and her genre-defining autobiography “Lady Sings the Blues” made her a cultural icon. The evocative, soulful voice which she boldly put forth as a force for good, turned any song she sang into her own. Today, Billie Holiday is remembered for her musical masterpieces, her songwriting skills, creativity and courageous views on inequality and justice." - BillieHoliday.com

Venue Information - The Black Gate Cultural Centre

The Black Gate is a place of the arts. It has been born with creativity at its heart, and, with it, we will further assert the creative soul of this city. With music, literature, art, film, dance, and learning, we will create a home for the artist and a haven for art lovers. This will be a place to enjoy. Both for the events that happen here or for the atmosphere. Whether listening to a concert, watching a film, listening to a speaker, enjoying reading a book in the library with a coffee or a glass of wine, or having a good night with old friends, we will welcome you, we will look after you, and we will entertain you.
