Three of Ireland’s leading jazz artists, The RBG Trio will appear at Armagh’s Market Place Theatre this September to support the release of their debut album.
Renowned for their tight interplay and incredible storytelling, The RBG Trio features Meilana Gillard (tenor saxophone), Dave Redmond (bass) and Kevin Brady (drums). With blues always in their foundation, their sound ranges from pre- to post-bop, soulful to grunge, free to swinging.
The trio’s repertoire ranges from the traditional Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson to more contemporary and improvised output. It is an approach where free-form exploration rubs shoulders with reimagined music from the like of Nirvana and Soundgarden.
Ultimately, nothing is off limits. It is a band led by tunes – mainstream or lesser known, self-penned or reinterpreted, traditional or contemporary. If it works, it works. Additionally, each member of The RBG Trio composes for the band, which lends to the trio’s diverse output and constant surprise.
The RBG Trio will be on stage at Armagh’s Market Place Theatre on Friday September 22, at 8pm. Tickets are priced £15 and can be booked online at www.visitarmagh.com/marketplacetheatre or through the Box Office on 03300 561 025.
