Nigel Mooney Sunday Jazz Sessions @ the United Arts Club
Hailed by the B.B.C. as “Ireland’s King of the Blues”, Nigel Mooney is long established as Ireland’s leading jazz singer/guitarist. Steeped in the blues from an early age, Mooney formed his Gripewater Blues Band in the early 1980’s, spearheading Ireland’s blues movement and working with the likes of B.B. King, Lowell Fulson, Bo Diddley, Hubert Sumlin and Louisiana Red. Since the mid-1990’s, he has been a leading figure in Ireland’s jazz scene and his 2013 album, “The Bohemian Mooney” was awarded Jazz Album of the Year by The Irish Times and featured guest appearances by Georgie Fame and Louis Stewart. He continues his Sunday afternoon residency with the Johnny Taylor Trio at the United Arts Club.
