The Boylan / Buckley / Evans trio has been described as an ‘oh so tasty trio in the style of Nat Cole and Oscar Peterson with standards and soul infused originals for piano, guitar and bass respectively’.

The three convivial spirits here are Cian Boylan, Hugh Buckley and Damian Evans. Since their inception in 2008, they have become the leading exponents of the Piano/Guitar/Bass Trio in the country. What started as a way to kill time during a year spent on a Masters in Jazz Performance blossomed into a satisfying swinging trio of the old school with a contemporary twist.

It quickly became apparent that the line-up was something they enjoyed immensely and an instant rapport developed within the trio. Time always tells, and a long-standing residency in Cibo jazz club in Dublin has brought forth an empathic style and a lovely division of labour between three excellent soloists, all out to have a good time. In addition to the residency, the trio also appeared on RTÉ’s The View, a series of performances in Bewley’s Theatre Cafe, appearances at various Jazz Festivals, special guests of Guinness on Arthur’s Day and appearances at Dublin’s premier jazz performance space, The Pendulum @ JJ Smyth’s.

In late 2010 the group recorded the their debut CD in true jazz style over a period of two days in Pyro Studios, Dublin. The result was a relaxed but fresh sounding documentation of this Trio representing the mainstream face of contemporary jazz in the Dublin jazz scene.
