“Cormac is world class. He is an incredible musician.” – Martin Hayes
Navigator Jazz Residency at An Grianán in partnership with Improvised Music Company (IMC)
Cork-based composer, pianist and arranger Cormac McCarthy brings to bear a background across traditional, jazz and classical in his innovative music. Presenting an individualistic use of Irish traditional tunes in the jazz idiom along with sweepingly cinematic textures, McCarthy marries two genres which are seldom brought together successfully.
As part of a new residency at An Grianán, in partnership with Improvised Music Company, Cormac will be on site this July developing new work and collaborating with Micheál Murray of the Murray Brothers. Audiences can enjoy an online sharing of work from this innovative musician on Friday 23 July.
