JAZZGate shows are now postponed until further notice, at least until March 29th. This is due to the mandatory government measures implemented around Covid19.
Stay safe everyone!
Thanks to everyone who came down to the In Flow shows last week at Galway Jazz Festival! Was an absolute blast performing with the whole ensemble, which featured the wonderful Matthew Jacobson on drums, as well as Andrew Madec, Simon Kenny and Alain Halimi!
AMW Visual also did an absolutely amazing job on the visuals and documentary.
Thanks to the whole team at Galway Jazz Festival for having us, Ellen Cranitch, Ciarán Ryan and Matthew Berrill did a fantastic job on putting together the best festival yet!
Huge thanks to That’s Life, Arts Council Ireland and Galway and Roscommon ETB for their generous support and funding for the project. Onward and upward for In Flow!
