Phisqa: Phisqa

Read "Phisqa" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Jazz has come far in Ireland in the last decade or two, leaving behind the trad-jazz on a Sunday image for an altogether more contemporary scene. In part, this is due to the increasingly cosmopolitan face of the country's cities, and in no small measure to the influence of Dublin's Newpark Music Centre, the only educational institution in Ireland to offer jazz studies.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
