This is How we Fly - Saturday 3rd

Bray Jazz Festival is the longest established jazz festival weekend taking place within the Greater Dublin Area, each year.

The festival returned for it's 15th year on the May Bank Holiday weekend - presenting a programme of close to 40 concerts, recitals and jazz trail gigs in the North Wicklow town and outlying areas over the three days of the holiday weekend. Great houses, great reaction, great feedback - thanks again to all who turned up and supported the event.  Onwards towards year 16!  

We received some great preview pieces in advance.  These included an interview and profile of Marius Neset in Thursday's Irish Times, and a festival preview in The Irish Examiner.

Highlights

Bray Jazz returns for its 15th year

Bray Jazz Festival will return on the upcoming May Bank Holiday weekend - May 2nd, 3rd and 4th next.

We're delighted to be back for the 15th installment of what is the largest and longest established weekend showcase of contemporary jazz music in the Greater Dublin Area,  and are currently finalising programme details for the holiday weekend.

Headline visitors this year include two of New York's leading jazz improvisers,  a major figure in Brazilian bossa nova,  and one of the hottest young artists in European jazz.  Full programme details will be announced in the coming week.
