The Jazzabelles, an all-women jazz collective, is set to perform at The Abbey Tavern in Dublin on Friday, March 8, 2024, from 19:30 to 23:00 GMT in celebration of International Women’s Day. This event promises to be a meaningful gathering, spotlighting the achievements and contributions of women in the jazz genre and beyond.

Since their formation in 2021, the Jazzabelles have quickly established themselves as a notable presence in Ireland’s live jazz music scene, having performed at various venues and festivals including Arthur’s Jazz & Blues pub, the Cork Jazz Festival, and more. Their performances have been met with enthusiasm, showcasing their diverse repertoire that spans bebop, Latin, blues, swing, and contemporary jazz.

The International Women’s Day event will not only feature the Jazzabelles’ vibrant performances but will also serve as the launch for their new album. This album includes compositions by illustrious women jazz artists such as Alice Coltrane, Carla Bley, and Cindy Blackman. In a gesture of solidarity and support, the collective has announced that all CD sales from the evening will be donated to a Women’s Shelter, offering refuge to those affected by domestic abuse.

Adding to the evening’s festivities, the acclaimed jazz pianist and composer, Howthy Luke Howard, will join as a guest performer, further enriching the musical lineup with his expertise.

The Jazzabelles hail from a diverse array of backgrounds, including Ireland, France, Germany, Kuwait, Latvia, and England, reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of Ireland’s music scene. This diversity is not only evident in their music but also in their commitment to creating a space where community and empowerment are celebrated.

The Abbey Tavern, located at 28 Abbey Street, Dublin, will host this special event. Attendees are encouraged to come together with friends and family to enjoy an evening of chilled jazz vibes, community, and empowerment, marking a significant celebration of International Women’s Day through the universal language of music.
