Jazztalk At The Maiden City Festival In August 2012

In August 2012 Jazztalk took part in The Maiden City Festival in Derry. The Maiden City Festival introduces new performances and artists within and around the walls of the city during the August holiday period and is a major visitor attraction on the north west’s summer calendar. As always, the line-up promises a home for all those who wish to celebrate drama, music, song or dance. The Festival offers something for everyone and works hard to bring pride and tourist trade to the city. This gig was part of the festival’s culture bite series which is a diverse range of free lunchtime performances in cafés and lunch spots within the city walls everyday from Monday to Friday. The smooth running of the festival would not be possible without the great organisational skills of David Hoey and the organisers and it was a great pity that David could not stay longer and hear the jazz trio but his role means that he can only catch performers for a brief moment.

The festival continues to go from strength to strength and Jazztalk played outside Cafe Del Mondo in the craft village. The trio got a great reception from a very appreciative audience made up of locals and tourists who enjoyed jazz standards and latin classics. Jazztalk hope to play in the festival again next year and to also include a jazz guitar workshop for beginners.
