June Jazz at Johnstown Castle

June Jazz at Johnstown Castle

Saturday June 29th at 8pm with door opening at 7.30pm.

Wexford is very fortunate to have a first class jazz musician – Kevin Lawlor – on its doorstep. And Jazz at Johnstown is very fortunate to have the Kevin Lawlor Quartet headlining our concert on Saturday June 29th.

And what a quartet! Kevin will be joined by the great Welsh pianist Dave Jones, Peter Vogelaar on bass and, returning from England for this concert with Joseph Leighton on guitar.

This Jazz at Johnstown Festival special will be a cause of celebration because Kevin will feature songs from his fifth album. Titled The Island, all original compositions ranging from swing to contemporary groove driven pieces.

To add to the occasion, this performance will be opened by the County Wexford School of Music Youth Ensemble. Kevin is the Director of Jazz Studies here.

Meet the band. Dave Jones has performed at Jazz Festivals internationally and recently sold out Pizza Express in London; Joseph Leighton is an up and coming guitarist on the London jazz scene, makes up part of the faculty of the Sligo International Jazz Summer School and, like Dave, features on the album.

Peter Vogelaar is a highly respected and accomplished electronic music artist and producer.
