“Anyone interested in where creative music is headed in Ireland should make the Signal Series their monthly check-in.” - The Irish Times
In 2019, Improvised Music Company committed to celebrating Irish jazz talent with the creation of a new monthly live event, The Signal Series, focused on showcasing the best emerging and established Irish jazz and improvised music acts from across the country.
The first year of Signal Series saw:
61 Irish musicians from
11 counties perform
16 sets in
2 venues, for
8 brilliant nights of music.
Beginning in Temple Bar at The Wild Duck, the autumn season moved to the home of Dublin jazz, Arthur's Blues & Jazz Club. 2019’s ensembles included piano trios, guitar duos, instrumental quintets and quartets, organ trios and an array of vocalists in different set-ups. Styles ranged from the Brazilian-influenced Tudo Bem, to classic jazz vocal stylings, to the contemporary sonic explorations of ReDiviDeR.
We're already kicked off with the first Signal Series of 2020, which took place on Thursday 6th February at Arthur's Blues & Jazz Club, featuring BigSpoon and ÄTSCH.
We're now programming Signal Series for 2020, so artists, please apply through our open call form HERE.
Here's to another great year of Irish jazz in 2020!
