Camilla George to make her Irish debut this June

Words: Eva O’Beirne

MOBO-nominated saxophonist and star of acclaimed group Jazz Jamaica, Camilla George will be touring Ireland for the first time this summer.

Brought to you by Music Network, the explosive London-based, Nigerian born award-winning jazz musician will be bringing her all-star band with her across the country for a series of tour dates.

Camilla George is a unique voice on the international jazz circuit, known for her love of fusing African and Western music and her hypnotic blend of Afrofuturism, hip hop and jazz.

She will be joined by her all-star band featuring Renato Paris (keys and vocals), Jihad Darwish (electric and double bass) and Rod Youngs (drums) for performances in Dublin, Cork, Sligo, Newbridge, Kilkenny, Cork and more.

As part of Music Network’s commitment to making live music accessible to people of all ages in Ireland, Camilla and her band will lead a series of music workshops for jazz musicians in school and community settings throughout this tour.

The workshops will provide a unique opportunity for musicians to engage with and learn from some of the very best musicians the UK jazz scene has to offer, including BRIT School graduate and London West End musician Renato Paris, BBC featured artist Jihad Darwish and acclaimed composer and educator Rod Youngs.

Tickets range from 12 euro to 25 euro. You can find all tour dates and ticket links below.
