Doors 9 Music 9.30 Entry €10 Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as Ireland’s leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980’s, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues. A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove. He possesses a warm and rich tenor voice and has an almost flawless sense of pitch. Jim Doherty has been leading trios, quartets, small groups & big bands for over 50 years. There is very little in the music scene that Jim has not tackled with his usual flair, attention to detail and humour from writing for stage, radio, TV, Movies, jingles to backing some of the most famous luminaries of the music scene worldwide. His long-term association with the great guitarist, Louis Stewart was severed last year with the untimely death of Louis.
