Jazz Trio; Richie Buckley, Simon Morgan, Drazen Derek
We welcome three of the founding members of “Stolen Chicken” a new musical collective made up some of Irelands top international musicians. A style of music combining Jazz, Folk, and World, with hints of The Cafe Orchestra (whose guitarist, Drazen Derek is founder of the band), this eclectic collective, borrow from all their influences and musical experiences, to appropriately appropriate in this beautifully accessible cultural world.
Drazen is joined by renowned vocalist, Simon Morgan, whose last album, “Thomas Moore Reimagined” hit the top of the iTunes Charts earlier this year, after featuring as Ireland’s National radio station’s Album of the week.
Also featured is Irelands top Saxophone player Richie Buckley (“something of a genius… a world reputation amongst saxophonists”..Irish Times), who has recorded, and toured, with artists from Van Morrison, to Mary Black.
Following on from a sold out performance at The Clifden Arts Festival, Ireland, and The Creative Connections Festival in Sitges, Spain, where they debuted a number of their original tracks with artists including John Sheehan (last remaining member of the global group “The Dubliners”) their concerts are a continuation of their fun and creative exploration of World Music.
