ÄTSCH started life as a graduation ensemble put together by guitarist Matthias Winkler for his Newpark BA in 2016. From there, the quartet took up a weekly residency at The Front Door on Dame Street. This year they have played the Bray Jazz Festival and, in April, travelled to Germany to take part in jazzahead!
In October 2017, ÄTSCH released their self-titled debut EP in Arthur's Pub, Dublin.
This month, the quartet are set to return for their first anniversary gig in Arthur's where they have promised to deliver completely new music, which will be recorded live on the night, as well as performances from their eponymous debut release.
