Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to catch renowned local jazz clarinetist Matthew Berrill, joined by pianist Greg Felton with Sean Carpio on drums.

Berrill is a talented musician and composer. He plays clarinet, saxophone, and the fiddle and in his spare time conducts the NUIG Concert Orchestra.

Check out some of his music:

Meanwhile the other two-thirds of the trio are chock full of musical ability as well. Hailed in the Irish Times as “the most gifted young pianist on the scene,” Felton is a fearless improviser whose distinctive compositions and two-fisted technique draw on everything from jazz and folk traditions to South Indian classical music. His intuitive and often playful approach to music is shared by drummer Seán Carpio, who according to the Irish Times “… may be the finest drummer ever produced here”.

Admission is free, but come early to ensure you get a seat!
