Jim Doherty's Tenor Madness 3.00pm
The word legend is often overused but in the case of Irish jazz musician Jim Doherty it is totally appropriate. Jim has been at the forefront of Irish jazz for over 50 years and has played with some of the greatest names in jazz from all over the world in that time. His longtime partnership with the great guitarist Louis Stewart came to an untimely end in August 2016 when Louis sadly passed away. Jim is a most respected performer arranger and composer and has fronted many bands over the years. Limerick Jazz Festival 2018 will see Jim bring his quintet TENOR MADNESS to Dolans Warehouse which features some of the Ireland’s best, names like Richie Buckley Dave Flemming Brendan Doyle Dominic Mullen and of course Jim himself. Be prepared for an hugely entertaining afternoon of hi calibre jazz
Limerick Jazz Quintet with Aoife Doyle 4.30pm
Presented by Limerick Jazz Festival
Aoife Doyle is up there with the best of them' The Irish Independent
Aoife Doyle’s unique, expressive voice is equally at home with jazz, folk, country, bluegrass or blues, and her singing can evoke memories of the sophisticated, velvet tones of Ella Fitzgerald, the earthy, sweet lyricism of Patsy Cline or the straight-up country clarity of Alison Krauss.
In 2013 she released her first solo album 'This Time the Dreams on Me', a collection of songs with unique arrangements. In recent years Aoife has stepped into the role of composer and in June 2017 she released her first album of original music 'Clouds' to critical acclaim.
Aoife is without doubt one of the finest talents in Ireland today, she will be joined by a superb band The Limerick Jazz Quintet who in their own right are some of the best musicians this city has to offer Bryan Meehan Piano, Joe O Callaghan Guitar, Steve Hanks Sax, Peter Hanagan Bass and John Daly Drums
