Bray Jazz Festival at The Harbour Bar | May Bank Holiday Weekend

BRAY JAZZ FESTIVAL

At The Harbour Bar

pasted image 0

Bray Jazz Festival returns for its 17th year this May Bank Holiday Weekend and The Harbour Bar as always, will host some fantastic acts every night Thursday to Monday, with some extra treats in store throughout Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoons and evenings.

Full info about the festival can be found at www.brayjazz.com  

Some highlights to keep an eye out for at this year’s Bray Jazz Festival

Persian Classical meets Irish Traditional music with the unique Navá, as they play spellbinding sounds on Thursday 28th April, these guys are ones to watch.

According to themselves, Retro Fix are “a bunch of high brow savages playing jazz, funk and rock music”, what’s not to love about that? See for yourselves on Friday 29th April.

We’ve very excited to have Vernon Jane with us on Saturday 30th April. The energetic and very expressive Vernon Jane are a collection of eclectic and talented musicians with multiple influences such as jazz, blues and psychedelia. They’ve toured extensively throughout Ireland and have caught the eyes and ears of industry folk.

Tongue Bundle’s music ranges from pop flavoured stompers through free jazz, mad grooves and noise. With an emphasis on improvisation the group focus on originality and humour. Based in Dublin, Tongue Bundle have played several engaging shows around Ireland and Europe, catch them on Saturday 30th April.

The wonderfully talented CC Brez joins us on Sunday 1st May. You might recognise CC Brez from his Republic of Loose days or his time fronting electro pop band Cars Love Girls but now the exceptional guitarist has stepped out alone.  

On Sunday 1st May check out Umbra – with the energy and power of a punk rock band and a broad range of influences, this five piece jazz band from Dublin stretch the boundaries of the form.

On Monday 2nd May we’ve got a double header with BARQ / Sax Panther. Prepare for some serious talent and originality coming from these two Dublin based bands. Five piece instrumental Sax Panther and then BARQ, fronted by Jess Kav who’s previously sung with Hozier and Jape and has a soulful and strong R&B vocal.  

Saturday 30th April it’s the turn of Edel Meade, who sings original jazz and neo-soul inspired tunes as well as contemporary arrangements of music written by Joni Mitchell & Michael Jackson always surrounding herself with the most inventive and groovy musicians she can find. The Sunday Independent says of edel – “She brings warmth, freshness and good timing.”

Firm Roots play on Sunday 1st May, they are a very creative and swinging band put together by drummer Jerry Fehily with Mike Nielsen, Myles Drennan and Dave Fleming who are among Ireland’s finest Jazz Musicians. They play the music of Cedar Walton, Bobby Darin, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter amongst others.

On Monday 2nd May we’re thrilled to have the chance to see the group Feather. An eight piece futuristic Afro soul band led by Emma Garnett. Originally from Sierra Leone, their music combines Emma’s African roots with her and her band’s irresistible hip hop and funk forays to create a sound that’s simultaneously forward looking and referential to the past.

Doors: 7:30pm

Tickets €42.50 including booking fee from www.ticketmaster.ie and usual outlets

www.sharonrobinsonmusic.com

**Tickets on sale at 9am Thursday 21 April**

Grammy award winning vocalist and song-writer SHARON ROBINSON returns to Dublin, following her sold out show at The Button Factory last year.

The multi talented composer, producer, and long-time Leonard Cohen collaborator will play an intimate show at THE SUGAR CLUB on Saturday 27th August.

Grammy-winning songwriter, and long-time Leonard Cohen creative collaborator, Sharon Robinson announces her return to Europe for a Fall 2016 tour.

“As some of you may know, I had to cancel my European tour scheduled late last year. After taking some much-­‐needed time, I plan to resume touring this August and September. I am very much looking forward to it. Thank you all for your patience and continued support.”

Sharon Robinson.

An Intimate Evening with Sharon Robinson, marks Sharon’s return to Europe commencing on 14 August at the Savoy Theatre in Helsinki, Finland. The fifteen-date tour will also pass through Goteborg, Malmo, Copenhagen, Kolding, Berlin, Manchester, London, Dublin, Gent, Den Haag, Prague and Paris, among other TBD locations. The tour continues support of her critically- acclaimed, second solo album, Caffeine, released last year…

Daily Mirror UK

… “It’s hard to think of any contemporary artist who radiates such effortless cool and dignity”- 4 stars

BBC Robert Elms Show

“I Love It! …beautiful, sumptuous, lovely…”

Irish Times

“…For those who like late-­‐night music that smoulders sensually while simultaneously raking the embers, Caffeine does the job. Songs such as The Harder You Look For Love, The Storm In Your Eyes, Safe and A Fragile Love epitomise delicacy and grace…”

For thirty years, Sharon Robinson has been associated with Leonard Cohen as a co-writer, producer, and vocalist. She co-wrote and produced Cohen’s 2001 album, Ten New Songs, (one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Albums of the Decade”), and co-authored the Cohen classics, “Everybody Knows” and “Waiting for the Miracle.” A Grammy-winning songwriter, Sharon’s work has been covered by artists as diverse as Patti LaBelle, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, and Roberta Flack to name a few. In 2014, she released an intimate photo collection, On Tour with Leonard Cohen (powerHouse books), spanning six years on the road with Cohen. In conjunction with this release, Robinson also showcased her work with exhibitions at the prestigious Morrison Hotel Galleries in New York and Los Angeles. In Spring 2015, Sharon completed her highly-praised first solo European tour celebrating the release of her album, Caffeine.

Thirteen years on from his debut album ‘Boy In Da Corner’, MC DIZZEE RASCAL will be making his Forbidden Fruit debut. Since he burst on the scene, he has five studio albums under his belt and is famed for numerous chart topping singles including ‘Bonkers’, ‘Dance Wiv Me’, ‘Fix Up, Look Sharp’, and his recent collaboration with DJ Fresh & High Contrast on the old school track ‘How Love Begins’, (complete with its awesome Mr Motivator inspired video) He’s a critically acclaimed artist, having won a BRIT Award, a BET Award, Mercury Prize, NME Award, Urban Music Award, to name a few.

We’re pretty damn excited to reveal that Brit singer KATY B will be joining the bill on Friday night. She recently announced news of her third studio album ‘Honey’ (released on April 29), which reads like a who’s who of collaborations, as she joins forces with Craig David, Major Lazer, Four Tet, Floating Points, Kaytranada and many more featuring throughout. With hit tracks such as ‘Crying For No Reason’ and ‘Lights On’, we can’t wait to dance our dubstep socks off.

Scottish hip-hop trio YOUNG FATHERS will also be joining us on Friday. In 2014 they scooped the coveted Mercury Music Prize fighting off serious competition. Between 2011 and 2013 they released two EP’s ‘Tape One’ and ‘Tape Two’ to critical acclaim, followed by two studio albums, ‘DEAD’ in 2014 and last year’s ‘Black Men Are White Men Two’. Their live shows have caused jaws to drop wherever they perform. Music website The Line of Best Fit said of the band, “London crowds can be the hardest to move, but within minutes this one is feral”.

Luke and Olly are the Cardiff duo that come together to form BODHI. They began with a slew of edits with the likes of the The XX, Sampha and The Beach Boys, with releases on Ten Thousand Yen, Future Classic, Exploited, Rinse and more. The Bodhi name has begun to demand close attention. Along with the aforementioned releases there has also been ongoing mainstream support from Radio 1 who playlisted ‘My City’ a collaboration with Brit nominated George The Poet.

A favourite on the Irish electronic scene, we’re thrilled to have MMOTHS joining us this year. MMOTHS, AKA producer Jack Colleran released his sought after debut album ‘Luneworks’ in March of this year to a very eager and expectant fan base and media alike.

We’ll also be welcoming the prolific musician and former Beta Band lead singer STEVE MASON. He has just released his third solo album ‘Meet The Humans’ in February 2016 to rave reviews, having also released material under the monikers King Biscuit Time and Black Affair.

French deep house project KLINGANDE is the work of Cedric Steinmyller, his unique sound of tropical house with prominent saxophone and piano produce uplifting and enthralling soundscapes. He brings his new LIVE show to this years festival, featuring numerous musicians playing guitar, violin, harmonica, drums, saxophone and singers.

Stockholm-born, Berlin-based, THE FIELD a.k.a. Axel Willner brings his LIVE ambient techno show to Forbidden Fruit for the first time. His 2013 album released on Cupid’s Head, hailed by Resident Advisor as “one of Willner’s most affirming and beautiful creations to date”.

** Yorkston / Thorne / Khan For The Workman’s Club **

The Workman’s Club presents…

 

Yorkston / Thorne / Khan

 

Sunday, 7 August

 

There are ultimately no words to describe our excitement to welcome experimental collaborative group Yorkston/ Thorne/ Khan to The Workman’s Club on Sunday, 7 August. These guys bring their totally unique sound of Indian-folk-jazz fusion to our gaff for a whopper gig that guarantees to be like nothing you have heard before.

A chance meeting in Edinburgh brought these lads together to start making music. Influential, Scottish folk-singer and guitarist James Yorkston, Indian sarangi maestro Suhail Yusuf Khan and jazz double bassist Jon Thorne are the squad that form this unlikely trio. The three-piece somehow manage to seamlessly merge Scottish- folk, north Indian classical and western-jazz and the result is pretty epic.

Their album ‘Everything Sacred’ came out early this year and has been met with serious interest for its individual sound. The Guardian deemed the three guys as “bravely original” and Renowned For Sound praised the record as “a fascinating, if not always thrilling listen.”

Their world-sound is completely one-of- a- kind and not something you are going to want to miss.

Yorkston / Thorne / Khan

Sunday, 7 August/ Door Time: 8pm / Ticket Price: €15

Tickets available now from www.theworkmansclub.com

White Boys Brand New Single Stylin’ Out 15th April

White Boys

Single ‘Stylin’ released 15th April

Stylin’ is the first single from their forthcoming EP releasing later this year

“Genius production values” – Joe.ie

“So good” – entertainment.ie

“Fair Balls” – The Rubberbandits

“This is pretty groovy!” – Panti Bliss

Listen to Stylin’ right HERE

https://soundcloud.com/whiteboys-3/stylin-radio-edit?in=whiteboys-3/sets/stylin-deluxe-single-pack

Irish funk duo White Boys are set to release their single Stylin’ on April 15th. A mutual love of RnB, soul, funk and all things groove being the driving force behind the duo’s new single ’Stylin’ set for release next month. The band are renowned for delivering colourful, up-tempo, high-energy performances. 

Formed after a chance meeting between musicians Gary Keane and Eoin “Walshy” Walsh on the set of The Late Late Show, White Boys quickly established themselves last year with their electro-funk cover of Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’. The boys gained even more recognition for their creative production and video skills.

In their short time together, White Boys have already worked with producer G1 (R Kelly, Snoop Dogg), with engineer Tommy D Daugherty (Death Row Records, Tupac) and attended recording sessions with Earth, Wind & Fire and that’s just a snapshot of what’s to come from this Cork duo. Both The Irish Times and Nialler 9 previously named White Boys as their ʻNew Artist of the Weekʼ and Stylin’ has also featured as ‘Song of the Day’ on Joe.ie.

To date, the band have headlined The Savoy in Cork, played two sell-out shows last October supporting Walking On Cars in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. They have performed twice at the prestigious Electric Picnic, having got through to the final stage of 2FM’s ‘Play The Picnic’ competition which also saw them travel to RTÉ studios to record a live version of their track Stylin’.

No stranger to the music scene, Gary has been performing extensively for the past 2 years as a solo artist, playing in as far-reaching places as Indie Week Canada in Toronto and The Mint in Los Angeles. Eoin, one of the most sought-after musicians in Cork, has worked as an instrumentalist and writer with artists such as Colm K, Brian Deady and David Lyttle and has been featured on Brooklyn label Bastard Jazz and London label Tummy Touch.
