Arboreal Tour - Carole Nelson Trio

Friday, 17 September 2021, 8.00pm

The Carole Nelson Trio released their second album Arboreal in February 2020, which has since received glowing acclaim, including the Irish Times top ten albums of the year and All About Jazz Magazine Album of the year 2020. The Carole Nelson Trio are now going on a 6-date tour around Ireland in August / September. Ticket numbers will be limited so do book early!

The trio is centred around Carole’s composition and piano work accompanied by Cormac O'Brien on bass and Dominic Mullan on drums.

'a rare and exceptional talent-one of the more original composers in Irish Jazz' - Irish Times

'Nelson is, without question, as the refined language of her writing and playing constantly reiterates, a singular voice,' - ​All About Jazz Magazine

The theme of all things arboreal runs through the album. As Carole says on the album notes -

'Arboreal began as a walk through my local woods in South Co. Carlow. I wanted to compose music that would express the living reality of a forest – from the mycelium network beneath my feet to the sheltering canopy above, with a sense of the deep interconnection of all living things. While I was composing, information about the climate emergency was reaching more and more of us and I felt the need to respond, as a composer, to the overarching concern of our times. I learned from activists and eco-philosophers about finding the courage to feel, about emotional resilience and active hope.'

This is music to immerse oneself in - lyrical, open-hearted and grounded in a spirit that refuses to give up hope.
