Cork & Wigan Jazz Twinning Event

Recorded live on 22nd March 2018 at The Woodford.

Two of Europe's best known centres for Jazz - Cork & Wigan - joined forces for this special 'twinning event', to promote both the Cork Jazz festival and Wigan Jazz festival. Here is a flavour of what you can expect to hear and see! The event was organised by The Irish in Europe Association, based in Brussels, whose mission is to help to connect the Irish diaspora across Europe in new and imaginative ways. The Niall Marron band from Cork performed on the night, along with very special UK guest saxophonist Mike Smith, at Cork's premier Jazz weekend venue The Woodford. The gig was streamed live to invited audiences at The Wigan Jazz Club and The Wild Geese Bar in Brussels. Check out for details of future events.
