The Richie Buckley Quartet

Having recorded with Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello, one of Ireland’s most acclaimed tenor saxophonists Richie Buckley will make his debut at Jazz at Johnstown on Friday, April 21, with an extraordinary trio of musicians.
With his unique style and virtuosic technique, Richie is internationally recognised as a legendary jazz performer, lionised by The Sunday Independent as a musician who “manages to be simultaneously passionate and gentle, romantic and elegiac."
