Bray Jazz Festival is Ireland's leading contemporary jazz and improvised music festival to be held within the Greater Dublin Area, each year.  2016 will be our 17th year.

Tickets are now on sale for this year's May Bank Holiday weekend event, which will feature a host of great shows, including performances by American pianist Kenny Werner, by one of Sweden's best known players Magnus Öström, and by Grammy Award winning West African singer Dobet Gnahoré.  Our new church concert venue at The Well on Main St will feature performances by trio Vein with American sax legend Greg Osby, a free to attend recital with Mexico's leading jazz pianist Alex Mercado, and a specially created piece from Irish composer Ronan Guilfoyle to commemorate his grandfather's role in the 1916 Rising. 

Elsewhere, our popular early evening recitals at Bray Town Hall will present a series of captivating duo performances, with artists from Norway, The Shetland Islands and Ireland set to feature.
