ART This lasted un­til dawn... Wex­ford County Coun­cil, with the Wex­ford Arts Cen­tre, has put to­gether a fairly ter­rific show of paint­ings from IMMA’s col­lec­tion. The ti­tle is from an Ice­landic ac­count of the Battle of Clon­tarf, and myth, his­tory, per­cep­tion and mem­ory, the ma­te­rial and the im­ma­te­rial worlds emerge as themes in pow­er­ful works by Basil Black­shaw, Oliver Comer­ford, Bar­rie Cooke, Diana Cop­per­white, Wil­liam Crozier, El­iz­a­beth Mag­ill, Michael Mulc­ahy and Hughie O’Donoghue. JAZZ DIT Jazz Masters Octet There are stu­dent con­certs and then there are stu­dent con­certs. The cur­rent Masters in Jazz Per­for­mance pro­gramme at DIT, di­rected by gui­tarist Mike Nielsen, in­cludes some of the coun­try’s finest mu­si­cians, such as sax­o­phon­ists Michael Buck­ley and Ciaran Wilde, key­boardist Scott Flana­gan and drum­mer James Mackin. Here’s a chance to hear them eat up some clas­sic hard-bop charts from Art Blakey’s Jazz Mes­sen­gers.
