Erdinger & Live at Sin E Present
The 2nd Annual
CHRISTMAS JAZZ AND BLUES FESTIVAL 2017
6 – 10TH DEC
THE DES HOPKINS DIXIELAND JAZZBAND
Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as Ireland’s leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980’s, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues. A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove. He possesses a warm and rich tenor voice and has an almost flawless sense of pitch.
His first album, “All My Love’s In Vain” (Rubyworks) was released in 2005 to critical acclaim and has become one of Ireland’s highest selling albums by a jazz artist. The single, “Beautiful Day” charted on the Irish hit parade and still receives regular airplay. Over the following eight years, Mooney’s band backed many of the Chicago bluesmen who visited Dublin, among them Lowell Fulson, Louisiana Red, Larry Garner, U.P. Wilson and Johnny Mars, as well as opening for numerous acts including B.B. King, Bo Diddley, Hubert Sumlin and Dr. John, and playing at jazz and blues festivals in Ireland and overseas and appearing on Irish radio and television.
