Sign up for the next Jazz Connector - The Do's and Don’ts of Funding Applications with Kim Macari 

Continuing our fortnightly Jazz Connector online meet-ups, IMC would again like to invite all the communities of people who make up the jazz world in Ireland - musicians, promoters, educators and venues - to come together for a Zoom meet-up on Thursday December 10th from 1:30 - 3:00PM to discuss:

The Do's and Don’ts of Funding Applications with Kim Macari -  How to implement best practices when applying for funding from state bodies and other sources

We’ll be joined by Kim Macari. Originally from Fife, Scotland and now based in London, Kim Macari is a musician and composer immersed in the jazz and improvised music scene. As well as her performing and teaching work, she is a programmer at Vortex Jazz Club, Chairperson of Jazz Promotion Network and works with Arts Council England.

Kim is in a unique position to educate on this topic, having the distinct advantage of having ample experience in creating and receiving applications for funding through her various roles and projects.

We’ll navigate the sometimes murky waters of funding together and cover the essentials needed in any application as well as the major pitfalls you can easily avoid. This one is not to be missed! 

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST below to attend. You can also let us know if there are any particular topics that you would like us to cover in this or future discussions.

If you missed out on the last meeting, you can read all of the talking points that were discussed here.

ICONS - The Tommy Halferty Quartet play
The Music of John Scofield
this Saturday 21st November at 8pm

Opening with Ronan Guilfoyle’s take on Charlie Parker for his centenary in August, IMC’s Icons of Jazz series continues, presenting some of Ireland’s most renowned jazz musicians performing their take on the iconic musicians who have shaped jazz music in the last century.

Still performing today, renowned guitarist John Scofield moved from collaborating with greats like Miles Davis, to commanding his own place on the international jazz scene for his unique fusions of rock, bebop, swing and blues music.

Derry-born Tommy Halferty, the great elder statesman of Irish jazz guitar, is the perfect musical match to take on Scofield’s music. Like Scofield, Halferty has blended a wide range of styles over his career. His trio with one of Ireland’s finest rhythm sections - Dave Redmond and Kevin Brady - are currently Dun Laoghaire Rathdown’s Musicians-in-Residence and have toured widely to great acclaim.
For this series they are joined by Northern Irish organist and pianist Scott Flanigan, lending his virtuosity and fluent lyricism to an unmissable night of music.
