Music has a funny way old way of connecting people. Just before I hit record on my chat with A. Smyth, I remember we had crossed paths about 16 years ago.

There has to be some sort of catchphrase or slogan in that!

Interview with A. Smyth

It was great to catch up with Aaron Smyth ahead of his show at the Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston on September 4th. Opening up on the night will be our friend, Swimmers Jackson.

Aaron is such a good musician and also quite a modest one! You’ll see what I mean during the course of the interview. We also had a great chat about the changing face of Dublin and why it’s such a pity for the local community to see local venues and places like the market in Newmarket Square closing down.

We also chat about some of the great music that’s coming out of Dublin at the moment, including A Lazarus Soul.

You can find out more about A. Smyth on his website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
