HIATUS, in association with Westport Jazz are proud to present a concert of original music on June 26th 2019 starting at 8.30 pm.
Going from strength to strength even in its first months of existence, Westport Jazz has teamed up with local jazz group, HIATUS, to give our audience an interesting evening of original improvised music.
HIATUS TRIO is a classic jazz piano trio. The group was formed to give expression to an album of original music composed by Gerry Mc Nally.
Chris Darby on bass, originally from Glasgow but now resident in Ballina, studied bass and jazz studies at MIT London. Donal Hoban, on drums, studied with the iconic player and jazz educator, the late John Wadham.
Gerry Mc Nally, pianist, composer and music teacher completed his studies at Maynooth University.
Hiatus presents a modern fusion of classical influences and jazz sensibilities.
Gerry McNally’s original music was premiered in the Westport Town Hall some months ago, where it received high praise and appreciation.
The music evokes an eclectic mix of influences and melody, overlaid with intense complex layers and underpinned by the rhythm section. Influences reflect the diversity of the music and include artists such Brad Mehldau, Keith Jarrett and David Bowie.
The venue is Madden’s Bar in the Clew Bay Hotel in Westport and Admission is free. We look forward to seeing you there..
