The Irish Times: Derry guitarist Tommy Halferty assumed the mantel of Ireland’s most respected jazz guitarist. In a scene replete with talented jazz guitarists, that is praise indeed, but Halferty wears his mantle lightly, and his influence on younger guitarists, both as a player and as an educator, has been considerable. The ebullient guitarist’s longstanding trio features the hardest-swinging, most experienced mainstream rhythm section on the Irish scene today: Drummer Kevin Brady and bassist Dave Redmond, who respond to Halferty’s effortlessly fluent post-bop playing with talent and creativity
