Brilliant Corners : A festival of Jazz

There are five candles on the Brilliant Corners birthday cake this year! Where does time go?

The festival of Jazz is back with another incredible line-up featuring some of the most varied, exciting, and interesting music around from 7-11 March, 2017

This year the festival will pay homage to Charles Mingus with I Am Three, get experimental with Sirene 1009 and FAINT+, showcase local talent with Ronan Guilfoyle’s Hands, Organ Failure featuring Jean Toussaint, and the Joseph Leighton trio.

Brilliant Corners will also go full prog-rock with Belgian guitar trio Dans Dans and Norwegian guitar-bass-drum blasters Hedvig Mollestad Trio, before going out with a bang courtesy of Robocobra Quartet and Strobes.

There’ll be films too, with the Belfast Film Festival once again screening some not to be missed flicks at the Bean Bag Cinema.

If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect; amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, pop along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all its bijou glory!
