Kinsale Vintners, together with Una McCarthy, Diageo Ireland, announced details of the bumper 2017 Kinsale Guinness Jazz Festival programme that takes place in Kinsale from October 26-30. The Kinsale ‘Fringe’ Jazz Festival runs concurrently with the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival and always attracts visitors from near and far.

As well as the popular residencies in many of the Kinsale hotels and bars, this year Kinsale welcomes Ireland’s first lady of Jazz, Honor Heffernan, to The Trident Hotel, accompanied by the legendary Billy Crosbie. Honor will then travel around a number of Kinsale venues during the weekend.

Also, the fabulous Lamarotte Jazz Band from Holland will march around the streets of Kinsale, causing great excitement as they surprise people in various Kinsale venues.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming Honour Heffernan, the Lamarrotte Jazz Bank and many more acts to Kinsale. There is a huge appetite for jazz and blues and the Jazz weekend remains a popular date in the Kinsale calendar,” said Jack McGouran, Jazz Programme Musical Director.

There are several gigs from lunchtime to late in over 20 venues throughout Kinsale over the October Bank Holiday weekend. The Guinness Kinsale Jazz Festival Programme will be continually updated on www.kinsale.ie.

Pictured at the launch were Una McCarthy, Diageo with Graham Dalton and Anthony O’Sullivan from Sams Bar; Michael Frawley, The White House; Dave Dynan, Kitty O’Sheas; Anything O’Mullane, The Trident Hotel; Conor Ryan, the Folkhouse and Jason Hogan, The Silent Banjo.
