Bray Jazz Festival 2024

Late Night @ The Gallery

As one of the host venues of the festival Mermaid Arts Centre are delighteed to have partnered with Bray Jazz Festival once again to bring a range of events including the newest addition to the programme - Late Night @ The Gallery.

We want to keep the good vibes rolling into the night with our new late night lounge. Picture this: casual, intimate events in our Gallery space following the 8pm headline shows on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The best part? No tickets required! All festival attenders are welcome each evening, however our gallery space is a little smaller than the main auditorium so it will be first come, first served. Worry not - the bar will open and fully stocked and the music will carry through the space. Late Night @ The Gallery are not formal seated perfomances so feel free to stay for a while or stay for the evening.

This new innovation is made possible through the support of the Arts Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Night Time Economy programme. This support has allowed us to keep the doors open and the music flowing into the night. 

"The scheme aims to promote a vibrant cultural ecosystem in Ireland that thrieves after dark." - Minister Catherine Martin TD.

The Late Night @ The Gallery events are also very kindly being supported by Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company and Powerscourt Distillery.

Late Night @ The Gallery with Scott Flanigan Trio

With Kevin Brady (drums) & John Moriarty (guitar)

Scott Flanigan is one of the foremost keyboard players on the Irish jazz scene.

He has been making a name for himself as a side man over the last few years with Van Morrison, the Ulster Orchestra, Larry Coryell, Jean Toussaint, Jim Mullen and many others. On this outing, Scott turns his hand to organ in the classic guitar/Hammond/drums format. Joining him is the exquisite John Moriarty on guitar and acclaimed drummer Kevin Brady. The trio will perform their own unique versions of jazz organ classics as well as repertoire from the Blue Note Catalogue.
