The Doonbeg International Jazz Festival was held from Friday 31st May to Monday 3rd June 2013. Now in Its 14th year it was one to remember. With a full programme of performances throughout the whole weeekend with an excellent line up of bands and performers it certainly lived up to its reputation. Jazztalk performed at the festival for the first time and they had a great response from enthusiastic audiences. This festival succeeds due to the hard work of the festival committee led by Philippa Siegrist. Her own group Skazz had the audience in the palm of its hand and is symbolic of everything the festival represents. It is a tribute to the town of Doonbeg that it can attract top jazz artists year after year. Jazztalk will hopefully play at the festival again in the near future. For anyone interested in listening to quality jazz in a beautiful town check out this great festival. You will not be disappointed.
