After seven amazing years covering jazz/creative music throughout much of South East Asia I have relocated to Ireland. It's been a real pleasure to reconnect with the music scene in my home country after a long absence. The country boasts a vibrant music scene, particularly in Dublin, where a good number of innovative musicians are producing some excellent sounds. In addition, a number of progressive music agencies are doing tremendous work in attracting outstanding international acts to Ireland. The following list is a baker's dozen of the best concerts I caught in 2013.

April 12: Matthew Bourne, Dave Kane and Steve Davis: Salford Quays, Manchester, England

May 3: Christy Doran's New Bag: Bray Jazz Festival, Ireland
