Its not just IMC who are celebrating a significant birthday this November. The career of one of the great elder statesmen of the Irish Jazz scene, guitarist Tommy Halferty, will be honoured at a special event Tommy Halferty: ‘Flyin' Hi’ at 70 in The Opium Rooms on Thursday 24th November.
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.
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.
In every city, town and village, music groups have a powerful impact within communities, but, asks Ailbhe Kenny, do these groups get the recognition they deserve, and how can state policy support them better?
