Jazz on the Terrace celebrates 35 years (1982 – 1917) with a series of Eight Concerts

The non-profit music organisation, Jazz on the Terrace, is celebrating 35 years of promoting jazz in Ireland. A series of concerts in Dublin City Centre are planned which will see International and Irish jazz musicians come together. Eight unmissable musical events to be added to every music lover’s calendar.

The celebration comprises two festivals and two standalone concerts over the latter half of November 2017.

The first festival, TrioTrioTrioPiano, takes place over three evenings at Arthur’s Bar on Thomas Street in Dublin. Allen Smith, founder of Jazz on the Terrace, has long had a soft spot for piano trios. To celebrate, he is indulging this love and treating us to six amazing trios over three evenings in Dublin City Centre.
