The first jazz conference in Ireland will take place at the Dublin Institute of Technology, Conservatory of Music and Drama, Rathmines.
Since it was first named, jazz has been a phenomenon of mass-distributed sound, word and image. While its vernacular origins and emphasis on improvisation give primacy to live performance, the consumption of jazz is largely mediated through documentation of some form. This process of documentation has arguably been just as important as, and in some ways more important, than ‘the music itself’, shaping its reception and spread throughout the world.

In 1969 Eric Bell walked into a bar in Dublin, ordered a pint and settled down to watch a band play. Two of the members of that band were Brian Downey and Phil Lynott. He was knocked out by what he saw and heard and asked them to form a band with him. Both duly obliged and within weeks Thin Lizzy was born. The three of them worked very hard both in the studio and on the road and were eventually rewarded with a hit single, the anthemic – Whiskey in the Jar – which catapulted them into worldwide recognition.
Eric eventually decided to forge a solo career, playing in his favourite 3-piece

A Troubled Affluence at the United States 1945-1974
In 1945, the United States emerged as the dominant world power with an unprecedented global influence. It experienced a period of extraordinary economic growth and prosperity, which created a mood of national self-confidence that would see the 'manifest destiny' become international in nature. The long period of influence helped disguise serious divisions in American society. These divisions would shatter the mood of national unity that existed up to the 1960's. The most important domestic issue was that of Civil Rights which unleashed a rights revolution among the marginalised in the United S

Edna O'Brien revisits her era-defining debut novel in a new stage adaptation.
All of Edna O'Brien's novels published during the 1960s were ruled "indecent and obscene" under the Censorship of Publications Act. This started when the publication of The Country Girls caused outrage. It was banned in Ireland by the authorities and publicly burned by the clergy. Notoriety quickly turned to fame and this coming of age story of two young women in 1950s Ireland became a best-seller.

The struggle between father and son, past and present, imagination and reality, spans Dublin.
