Mark Redmond Jazz/Trad Fusion

August 2 @ 19:30 - 22:30

Mark Redmond - Jazz at Johnstown

Friday 2nd August 8pm, doors 7.30pm.

Fleadh Cheoil ne hÉireann, the world’s largest annual festival of Irish traditional music, is coming to Wexford town for the first time in August. In recognition, Jazz at Johnstown is contributing to the festivities by hosting a jazz/trad concert with renowned piper Mark Redmond and the Chris Colloton Trio at the Visitors Centre on Friday evening, August 2nd.

With an upbringing in traditional music, Redmond is noted as a musician who can fuse between various genres. He performs regularly with the RTÉ Concert and National Symphony Orchestras and has performed/recorded with many including Riverdance, Celtic Woman, Christy Moore, Imelda May, Westlife and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Guitarist Chris Colloton is one of the most brilliant innovators in Irish jazz: Chris’s speciality is also as an innovator and collaborator, having interpreted Pink Floyd’s Atom Heart Mother and Radiohead’s Paranoid Android at Jazz at Johnstown.

This will be the third such collaboration between these musicians, after two successful sold-out performances at Johnstown in 2023.
