Roamer is an exciting new project that brings together four of Ireland’s most internationally active improvising musicians for a two-night run at Dublin’s newest creative music hub. Vocalist Lauren Kinsella was recently announced as the 2016 Jazz FM UK Vocalist of the Year; saxophonist Matthew Halpin was the first Irish musician to receive the presidential scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music; Simon Jermyn is one of the most in-demand creative music bassists in New York and drummer Matthew Jacobson tours Ireland and Europe frequently with many leading improvising musicians and ensembles. Although based in Dublin, Cologne, New York and London, this July will see the four artists come together for one week, each contributing original material aimed at affording them the highest levels of openness, spontaneity and communication. Three of the four musicians are also connected having released albums on Diatribe Records, Ireland’s leading label for new sounds, who will co-present this special event: Simon Jermyn ‘Hymni’ (DIASOL004, 2010); Thought-Fox (lead by Lauren Kinsella) ‘My Guess’ (DIACD013, 2013) and ReDiviDeR (lead by Matthew Jacobson) ‘Never odd or eveN’ (DIACD012, 2011) and ‘meets I Dig Monk, Tuned’ (DIACD016, 2013). Each “roamer” has represented Ireland extensively on stages around the world and this will be a unique opportunity for Irish audiences to see what happens when they bring all this experience back home together.

Terry Reid

Written by conall. Posted in Past 'Events', Music


Terry Reid, Superlungs as he’s affectionately known, is without doubt one of the greatest rock/soul voices this country has ever produced or is indeed likely to. A Terry Reid concert should be a cherished memory for any self-respecting fan of the greats of British music.

The legend is of turning down the front man’s job with Led Zeppelin, recommending his mate Robert Plant instead, a similar offer and rebuff to Deep Purple; of Aretha Franklin’s statement that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968, of two World Tours with The Rolling Stones, US tours with Cream, UK tours with Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac, The Isle of White Festival in 1969 and Glastonbury in 1970, playing at Mick Jagger’s wedding, then soured record deals and leaving Britain for America nearly 40 years ago. ( for full history)

All true, but the full story includes numerous collaborations with Graham Nash, who produced Reid’s 1976 album Seed of Memory; covers of Reid songs by Marianne Faithfull, The Hollies, The Raconteurs (the hugely popular Rich Kid Blues), Cheap Trick and in 2012 Rumer included Brave Awakening on her album Boys Don’t Cry. Reid songs have featured on film soundtracks, including a song in George Clooney’s film Up In The Air and several tracks on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects. There is a catalogue of 6 studio albums, including the seminal album The River, re-released to critical acclaim in 2014 (9/10 Uncut) and the 1976 Nash produced Seed of Memory (also available from BGO Records. A Reid song – Horses Through a Rainstorm, which Reid originally recorded as Without Expression – also features on Crosby, Still & Nash’s box set
