AENGUS HACKETT

TRIO ALBUM LAUNCH

Galway jazz guitarist and composer Aengus Hackett has honed his creative voice for many years in collaborations with the cream of Ireland’s jazz scene. This is brought to the fore in his debut trio album featuring two of Dublin’s finest improvisers, Derek Whyte (bass) and Matthew Jacobson (drums). Between them these three seasoned performers have worked with leading international artists such as Kit Downes (UK), Ralph Alessi (US), Sanem Kalfa (TUR), and Irish stalwarts such as Mike Nielsen, Conor Guilfoyle, Ensemble Ériu and Dirty Jazz Club.


Drawing on his diverse influences, Hackett’s music combines elements of jazz, rock and electronica. With their collective experience as improvisers, this group approaches Hackett’s melodic compositions with a freedom which is invigorating.


This allows the music to go wherever it wishes – gentle and lyrical, rhythmic and energetic, and when they take the leash off, in a word...wild.


On the night, the band will launch their new album with a full concert.


Expect thrilling music full of groove and melody, with no shortage of surprises.
