Sam Jackson – Live at The National Concert Hall

sam jackson nchThe ever so talented Sam Jackson is playing the National Concert Hall this Friday, August 12th.. Why should you go?

Sam is about to release his debut album ‘Sharp and Flat’ and this is a little preview gig on what you can expect from the classically trained pianoman. Most of the material for the album was written in New Zealand and was recorded in locations like Fiji and Thailand as well as dear old Ireland.

Sam’s original music has been used in TV, film and in theatre, he has worked extensively with Druid and The Abbey and his compositions have been featured on Broadway, London and Japan. He has also worked with Tony award winning director Gary Hynes. If that wasn’t enough he also plays keys with Moya Brennan.

The show on Friday starts at 8.30pm and tickets are a measly €5. Joining Sam will be Dave Mooney on bass (another extremely talented guy) and Shane O’Donovan. Sam is an amazing musician and composer and has promised “an open forum where anything can happen musically”.
