Cormac McCarthy - IMC Navigator Residency in An Grianan, Letterkenny

  • Process & creation

IMC's Navigator Jazz Residency programme, in partnership with An Grianán Theatre welcomed pianist composer and educator Cormac McCarthy to Letterkenny for 10 days in July 2021 to develop his solo work, write new music and engage with the local scene.

Cork-based composer, pianist and arranger Cormac McCarthy brings a background across traditional, jazz, and classical to his innovative music. Presenting an individualistic use of Irish traditional tunes in the jazz idiom along with sweepingly cinematic textures, McCarthy successfully marries these two strong genres, which both have improvisation and interplay as core elements.
