We'll be in IFI Cafe Bar from 14:00 – 16:00, and there'll be free tea and coffee. Come down and have a chat before Christmas rolls in.

Check out Zaska's Fund It campaign this month, featuring a free gig in Bello Bar on Sunday, and with Aleka launching her EP in Bello Bar on Dec 8th and Donald Helme's new podcast, the Hot Box, there's a ton of great stuff happening this month in the jazz scene. Check out the listings for more. 

12 Ponts and Down with Jazz are still accepting applications, so make sure to get those in soon. Music Network also announced the return of the
Music Capital Scheme, so make sure to check that out. Hope to see you all in advance of the musician meet at IMC 25 on Saturday 26th down in the Sugar Club for whats shaping up to be a great night of music. 

Yours in music making, 

Rob, Kenneth and Aoife

Articles and News

Donald Helme is back with a brand new jazz show. Presented on the Jazz Ireland website, Donald hopes it will satisfy the huge demand for a nationally available, hosted programme dedicated to just one musical form, something that no longer exists in Ireland.

It covers the best in Irish recorded jazz, set it in the wider context of the international language that is jazz. Emphasis will be on enjoyment. And a little bit of jazz history, especially as it applies to Ireland, thrown in.

Social Media Q & A for Jazz Musicians

Former jazz journalist and magazine editor Philip Freeman now uses his extensive experience in digital marketing – including time at Atlantic Records – to advise musicians on areas including social media and branding.
