The October long weekend (22-25 October) in Cork is ALWAYS associated with the Cork Jazz Festival. If you’re new to Cork, you can’t help but notice that is a FESTIVAL going on! You don’t even have to be into jazz to just soak up the great atmosphere.
Why not start your weekend by going along to Friday’s (22 Oct.) 1pm concert in the Devere Hall where the One O’Clock Lab Band from the University of Texas are playing.
According to the Irish Times (22-10-10)”The festival truly begins not with Friday evening’s gig at the Everyman Palace, but in UCC. The campus is at its autumnal best around now, and the lunchtime concert is always a great appetiser.”
Did you know – the University of Texas is the first university to offer a jazz degree!
