Frightened of free or improvised music, uncertain how to get into it?
Big Fights are your answer. Guitarist Billy Jenkins' stable are going head to head with three of Dublin's finest in what could be the row of the Century!
Six top improvisers and jazz musicians tough it out with the audience
in a series of 'round robin' musical duos complete with referee & timekeeper!
Each 'bout' consists of 3 x 2 minutes and as the bell sounds to end each round it is up to the audience to cheer the virtuosity, collectively swoon at the intensity of passion, sigh at what might have been - or just hurl abuse!
Nine duo bouts.
Sweat & tears, no blood.
Cutting edge improvisation in pop sized two minute chunks.
Can you last the distance?
