The premier of a suite of music written by MD of the New Irish Jazz Orchestra, Irish trombonist Paul Dunlea. The music draws inspiration from and reflects the turbulence and legacy (both positive and negative) of the Irish War of Independence and explores how its echoes reverberate through the political climate today. Dunlea is joined by an ensemble of world class musicians in Michael Janisch (double bass), Steve Hamilton (piano) and Andrew Bain (drums).
'A thoughtful and sensitive composer, with a gift for blending instruments to paint pictures in sound.' - The Irish Independent
