AFTER 18 months of going in and out of lockdown it's time to reconnect with the magic of the world of creativity, culture and music in Limerick.
Following the successful hosting of Culture Night on Friday, Limerick will play host to a wealth of both local and international musicians for the tenth annual Limerick Jazz Festival, which runs all next week from Monday, September 20 to Sunday, September 26.
Bands from Switzerland, Chile and Scotland will play live during the festival along with local musical stars and will feature a mix of online and live events.
