Curated by Aengus Hackett Music, the #JAZZGate Series pays tribute to the greatest jazz artists and composers of all time,

* JAZZGate will continue into this year, taking place every Thursday from 9pm *

"Nina Simone was a genre-defying musician whose recordings blended jazz, folk, classical piano and blues. She recorded countless iconic songs during her career, including “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” “Feeling Good,” “I Put a Spell on You," and the jazz staple “My Baby Just Cares For Me." In the 1960s, she became active in the Civil Rights Movement with songs such as "Mississippi Goddamn" and "To Be Young, Gifted and Black." In 2018, she [was] inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."

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.
