Anne Tracey will grace stage for City of Derry Jazz Festival performances

Anne Tracey Jazz Festival
Anne Tracey returns this year with a brand new City of Derry Jazz Festival show. With her new house band, Anne will host the cabaret style ‘Jazz with a Twist’ on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4 th May. Once again the location is the Holywell Diverse City Community Partnership building in Bishop Street. Anne commented: “Jazz with a Twist audiences are in for a treat as the show returns with its successful formula - a mix of music, song, and poetry.” The show features a fabulous house band led by Eddie O’Donnell who, along with Brian, Eamon and Adam, will be joined by Sean McCarron on saxophone, Tom Byrne on harmonica and concertina and Frank Cassidy on keys. As always, the show combines a mix of light jazz, blues and standards designed to delight and surprise. Anne will be joined by her brother Michael Corey who, once again, stars with her on the two nights of the show. She is also thrilled that the talented Felix Healy is returning this year, and singer-songwriter Roy Arbuckle –whose humour and songs have been a special hit with audiences over each of the past five years. Anne is looking forward to welcoming the fine singer, Joanna Harkin, who is making her jazz festival debut.  And those who have been to the shows know that ‘Jazz with a Twist’ would not be complete without the gifted Moneymore poet, Maura Johnston, who brings her own special brand of inspirational poetry to the Holywell stage. The show will start each evening at 8pm sharp. Please come early to get a good seat. Audiences are invited to bring their own drink/refreshment of choice. There are 80 tickets only available for each evening’s show. Tickets are £10 and are available through Eimear or Kevin at reception Holywell DiverseCity Community Partnership building [028 71 261941].
