In 2020 and again this year I have had the privilege of working together with these wonderful musicians: RTÉ ConTempo String Quartet, Matthew Berrill, Róisín Mulliez and Barry Donohue Music and it will be so wonderful to perform for you later this month!

After two years of development during a global pandemic, Galway Music Residency brings ‘JazzTempo’ to a live audience later this month. This residency project is immersed in genre-fusion and brings the best of Jazz and Classical music together to create an entirely new aural experience. The culmination of the project will be a live performance on Wednesday 31 August at 8pm in The Mick Lally Theatre.
Over two exploratory residencies since 2020 in the beautiful Oughterard Courthouse, ConTempo String Quartet and four of Galway’s most talented Jazz musicians have experimented, challenging one another and learning from each other’s experiences in their respective music genres. ConTempo Quartet has shared this experience with: Matthew Berrill (clarinet/sax), Aengus Hackett Music (guitar), Ró Mulliez (voice) and Barry Donohue (double bass) – some of the best emerging Jazz artists currently performing in Ireland. The result is a unique sub-genre of music set to delight and excite audiences.
Tickets (€10) are limited and go on sale Friday 12 August at 1pm!
