Brilliant Corners Jazz Festival: The Joseph Leighton Trio
Black Box Green Room
Moving On Music's annual major highlight, the Brilliant Corners Jazz Festival, returns once more from March 2-9. Acclaimed young Derry guitarist Joseph Leighton brings his trio to the Black Box for an afternoon performance in the Green Room on March 9.
One of the finest young jazz guitarists to emerge on the Irish jazz scene, he was selected as one of Moving On Music’s ‘Emerging Artists’ in 2016. He was one of the youngest musicians ever to be awarded a place at the Banff Centre, Canada, and having since studied with the likes of David Lyttle, Mike Walker, Vijay Iyer and Jesse Van Ruller, Leighton has swiftly developed his own voice mixing traditional and contemporary approaches and performing a combination of jazz standards with original material. This concert will see Joseph joined by fellow Moving on Music ‘Emerging Artist’ Jack Kelly on bass and Joel Waters on drums.
Tickets are available here, priced £6 - or £45 for the entire festival. Doors open at 2.45pm.
