Ó Bhéal jazzing up the Verse

27 October 2008

At the tail end of Cork’s Jazz festival, a full house swayed to the improv fusions of Keith Armstrong and The Honeyfeet, who met for the first time in the afternoon to rehearse for an hour, and they made magic.

Keith’s lyrical verse and tenor tones balanced superbly with the zesty quintet from Manchester, with Alabaster de Plume on saxophone, Samuel J Double Bass Buckley, Rick Warren on harmonica, Ríanna Ní Chonghaile on flute and vocals and Alice Davis on guitar. Videos of Newcastle poet Guy Hudson’s opening reading follow afterwards.

These vids are going to be major on Youtube. Here they are. Enjoy.
