Ballydehob is also happy to welcome Andreas Varady, a 12 year old Hungarian jazz guitar prodigy from Limerick, who will be playing with his father, Ondrej. Andreas is expected to be world class and his talent is already drawing wide attention.
The festival now in its fourth year is going from strength to strength. Most performances are free and either take place in the open air, or in bars and other local venues for a more intimate experience. Outdoor activities also include childrens entertainment, street theatre, busking competitions, and a market traders fair adding to the carnival spirit.
The festival retains an international flavour with artists hailing from various European destinations, and the music covers a broad range of traditional and contemporary jazz styles. There will be over 30 performances and the full line-up includes:
De-Hally-Bob Guitar Club
Cork City Jazz Band
Corks Got Talent
Dawn and Dusk
Les and Sam Clague
Molly O’Mahoney and Norman Collins
The Samuel Hudson Quartet
