Ronan Guilfoyle’s Lingua Franca

Ronan Guilfoyle's

Lingua Franca

Lingua Franca was Ronan Guilfoyle's working band of the early noughties, touring extensively, and twice venturing into the studio with memorable results. “Bird” and “Exit” stand as two exceptional Irish jazz releases, one reworking standards associated with Charlie Parker, the other a radical deconstruction of elements of our own traditional music. A decade on, Guilfoyle is revisiting the band’s repertoire and adventurous approach with a potent new line up that includes Michael Buckley’s scenery chewing tenor saxophone, and up and comers Chris Guilfoyle (guitar) and Matt Jacobsen (drums).
