Ireland’s leading jazz piano trio, with pianist Phil Ware (our Jazz curator), bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady. There is reason why they are “one of the hardest-working jazz trios in the country” (Irish Times)
Lunchtime concert at 1.05 performing selections from the works of famous jazz composers and the Great American Songbook.
Like the great piano trios that define this enduring jazz idiom, this is a democratic discourse between the three participating musicians, with each of the musical elements in a delicately poised balance between collective responsibility and individual expression. Stride for stride, a piano trio from Ireland worthy of the genre’s illustrious history.
“It’s no surprise that they’re one of the hardest-working jazz trios in the country with an appetite for exploration that matched pound for pound with an insistent connection to their listeners…”

Phil's career as a pianist and jazz educator has taken him throughout Europe and as far afield as America, Asia and the Middle East. His long-standing piano trio, completed by Newpark faculty members Dave Redmond and Kevin Brady, was chosen to represent Ireland at the 2008 Eurojazz Festival in Mexico City. As a sideman, he has played with international figures such as Guy Barker, Peter Ind, Ian Shaw, Gene Caldarazzo and heroes of the Acid Jazz revival, Pucho and the Latin Soul Brothers. His skills as a particularly sensitive accompanist are well-noted. Not only have they led to many engagements as musical director for live performances and studio recordings, they also form the foundation of the jazz ethos he teaches.
