The Sofa Sessions: Chris Guilfoyle Organ Trio @ Kilkenny Arts Festival
Chris Guilfoyle’s organ trio is a regular favourite at the Sofa Sessions, packing audiences in with their high energy performances of music by Joe Henderson, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and others. The group features rising Belfast keyboardist Scott Flanigan (ex-Van Morrison) and Sofa Session curator and Irish Times jazz critic Cormac Larkin on drums.
About the Sofa Sessions
Programmed by Kilkenny musician and Irish Times jazz critic Cormac Larkin, these weekly jazz sessions - in the intimate back room of the famous Billy Byrne’s bar - have garnered an international reputation over the last five years, with big names in improvised music from around the world falling in love with the informal, listener-friendly venue. This year, the Sofa Sessions comes to Kilkenny Arts Festival with a collaboration between some of the most creative musicians on the Irish and international jazz scenes, presenting both in a series of ‘club’ dates in the original room at Billy Byrne’s, and in a very special one-off concert in the Set featuring the full ensemble.
Please note that this event has limited seating, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
