THURSDAY 7.00pm Tom O'Halloran Trio

From modern swinging jazz through to ambient slow landscapes. Use of electronics that morph and become burning fast jazz tempos. Intricate Latin influenced compositions slow down to become intimate ballads. Such practice is commonplace for three musical brothers that have built an intriguing creative language between them via countless performances. Now audiences are starting to take notice how extremely listenable and melodic their sound is - while also fuelled with very strong grooves and a live emotional intensity. The Tom O’Halloran Trio individually and collectively have played alongside some of the big names in jazz; James Morrison, Geoffrey Keezer, Dale Barlow and Michel Legrand - and are now making some of their own waves. Tomo O'Halloran - Piano, Pete Jeavons - Bass and Daniel Susnjar - Drums. Click here for tickets
