Jazz with David Lyttle

19th September 2018 @ 10:00 pm

David Lyttle, drums
Lucian Gray, guitar
Conor Chaplin, bass

Drummer David Lyttle is Ireland’s most celebrated jazz musician of today. He is the island’s only MOBO Award nominee and has made appearances in over 25 countries, including recent artist residencies in the US, where he traveled from LA to New York in a Cadillac, performing for cowboys, bikers and UFO tourists; and China, where he was the British Council’s Musician in Residence for five weeks. Growing up in a prominent musical family in Co. Armagh, he’s gone on to collaborate with global icons of jazz, including Joe Lovano and Kurt Rosenwinkel, and his latest album was described by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘one of the best listening experiences you’re likely to have all year’.

At this year’s festival he will feature leading Canadian guitarist Lucian Gray, a finalist in the Wes Montgomery Guitar Competition, and British bassist of the moment Conor Chaplin, who appeared in Clifden last year with Dinosaur.

David Lyttle represents the best in jazz coming out of Ireland today.
