Colm Skwirbat

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music, What's on this Month

Born in Dublin in 1997, Colm Skwirbat is carrying on the tradition of the old blues masters of the Mississippi Delta by playing the blues on his homemade cigar-box guitars. He puts his own twist on old blues classics, while still capturing the raw feel and authenticity of the ‘20s and ‘30s bottleneck blues on his 1-string and 4-string guitars. These unusual instruments were built by his father out of otherwise mundane materials, such as a cigar-box, a dog bowl and a broomstick. Colm has performed at events such as Body&Soul, Electric Picnic, the Festival of Writing and Ideas at Borris, as well as main stage at the International Rory Gallagher Festival. 9.30 free in!

Septeto Internacional

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music

With the support of the Embassy of Switzerland in Ireland Arthur’s presents SEPTETO INTERNACIONAL Septeto Internacional is a unique combo of seven musicians from Europe and Cuba.The repertoire consists entirely of original compositions in the afro-Caribbean and latin jazz styles. It is music for the ears as well as the legs, for music lovers and dancers alike, performed by three wind instrumentalists and an explosive rhythm section. The bandleader and composer, Michael Fleiner, is always searching in his compositions for interesting ideas from different styles to develop latin jazz and afro carribean music and to give it a personal touch. In his music you can find jazz harmony as well as contemporary rhythm concepts, traditional and modern latin music, or even ideas from serial and dodecaphonic music. These very different elements are always packed in a hot and spicy latin groove. The Septeto Internacional has already performed in Europe as well as in Cuba, where the band was invited to present its music at the international Jazz Festival “Jazz Plaza”. From 2014 the band has a new excellent horn-section: the cuban trumpet player Juan Munguía (Irakere, Chucho Valdés, Jon Fadis, Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Henderson, etc.), the spanish alto sax player Lolo García and the swiss trombone player Bernard Bamert (Grand Mother’s Funck, Dave Regan Jazz Orchestra). In 2014 also a new CD came out with Fleiners new compositions. Don’t miss the occasion to hear and see this extraordinarily exciting band with excellent musicians coming from five different countries. doors 9.30 music 10-12 entry 15euro
