Ian Shaw (UK) with The Phil Ware Trio JJ Smyths Saturday 31st. January 2015 jjsmyths.com

Award winning jazz vocalist Ian Shaw makes his welcome return to JJ Smyth's to perform with The Phil Ware Trio. Featuring Ian Shaw – voice, Phil Ware – piano, Dave Redmond – bass and Kevin Brady – drums. This will be a highly charged evening as superb vocalist meets Ireland's leading piano trio.

Their original musical meet-up was at the Galway Jazz Festival in 2006; Phil invited Ian back to guest with the trio in Dublin in 2007, and RTÉ Lyric FM reunited them later that year for The Blue of the Night Live, broadcast from the Dublin Fringe Festival. Ian calls the Trio a ‘dream band’, and their collaboration has continued with many appearances in Ireland and the UK, including Ronnie Scott’s and Pizza Express Jazz Club in London. Phil also features on Ian’s highly acclaimed 2010 recording The Abbey Road Sessions.

Twice winner of the BBC Jazz Award for Best Vocalist, and with over a dozen highly acclaimed albums to his name, Ian Shaw has been described as one of the most distinctive, original and creative jazz singers on the scene. Alongside his own projects, he is much in demand as the featured soloist with big bands and orchestras, both in the UK and internationally, in addition to his long-term pairings with the likes of Guy Barker, Liane Carroll and Claire Martin.

“Praised far and wide as the greatest male jazz singer Britain has to offer” - Jazz Times

Dublin Unitarian Concert series 2015.

Dublin Unitarian Church presents
Spring Journey 2015
A musical voyage to warm you up after the cold winter !!!
In 2009, the Unitarian Church on St. Stephen’s Green in the city centre of Dublin unveiled ambitioius
plans to restore and upgrade their 1911 JW Walker pipe organ to bring it to the highest modern recital
and worship standards under the craftsmanship of Irish organbuilder Trevor Crowe. Since then, the
congregation have worked hard to raise €250,000 to finance this work. They are making good headway
but there is a little more to be done. The actual work will be finished in September 2015.
In 2014, the Spring Journey concert season was started as a presentation of high quality music in a
relaxed, enjoyable setting – all capped off by the satisfaction of raising money for this worthy cause.
The musicians are not household names but they are more than worth hearing. You will want to come
back and hear them again. It was successful and the second season runs from February through May
2015. We invite you to support by attending one or more of the concerts, or helping us spread the word
in the media, online or by word of mouth.
The concerts are
Friday February 27th @ 8pm
Mongoose – Original songs, Harmonies aplenty, Folk & Pop all at the same time.
www.mongooseband.com
Friday March 27th @ 8pm
Mariachi San Patricio - Mexican traditional music from an Irish-based group.

Friday April 17th @ 8pm

William Shakespeare

Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship if feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky,
That does not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As a friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.
