Yurodny’s command of the intricate music of The Balkans and Eastern Mediterranean is growing with every performance, and they return to The Pendulum on foot of a short national Irish tour and the warmest of receptions at The Kilkenny Arts Festival.

They’ll be showcasing a slew of new material, some learned during their recent collaboration with Greek ensemble Myriada, others gathered by band members just back from a road trip that culminated in Serbia’s notorious Guca brass band festival. Together, this octet drawn from the growing cohort of musicians exploring Balkan music here will take you down the road less travelled, borrowing freely from the rich traditions of Eastern Europe's addictive dance music with a distinctive Irish jazz flavour.

Saxophonist Nick Roth leads one of the larger ensembles to fit the JJ's stage, with Colm O’Hara (trombone), Francesco Turrisi (accordion), Oleg Pomanerov (violin), Kate Ellis (cello), Dave Redmond (bass) and Phil MacMullan (drums)
