Down With Jazz
New Years Day, 1934, Co Leitrim and Father Peter Conefrey leads a mob on the first of the infamous Anti-Jazz marches against the ‘evils of jazz’.
Fast forward to 2012, and there will be more jazz than you can shake a bishops crozier at the Down With Jazz festival in Temple Bar’s Meeting House Square, 24th, 25th and 26th August.
Expect all styles and none, at this free 3 day festival, with a line-up that includes up and coming bands like OKO and Redivider, funky populists like Max Zazka and Mixtapes from The Underground, and established names like Michael Buckley and Christine Tobin. Between sets there’ll be solo improvs and hot-cat activity telling the story of Irish jazz, with vintage vinyls on the decks giving late-night flavour of the music that caused all the fuss in the first place.
