Limerick Jazz festival returns for its second annual outing this week, boasting a stellar line-up of talent.

The brainchild of Limerick Jazz Society and jazz supremo John Daly, last year’s festival boasted a bustling programme of events around the city, and this year is no different.

The festival starts today with a gig by Louis Stewart and Jim Doherty - two of Ireland’s most prolific performers - in the Clarion at 8pm (€10).

The Larry McKenna Quartet, featuring Tony Miceli on vibes alongside the world renowned jazz saxophone player, play on Friday in the Clarion (€15), while the Christine Tobin Trio take to the stage in 69 O’Connell Street on Saturday at 8pm (€15) and the Crisis Point Big Band - featuring Andreas Varady and who were put together especially for last year’s festival - perform in Dolan’s on Sunday at 3pm (€10).

There are also several free events, workshops and a jazz trail. See Limerick Jazz Festival for details.
