Late Nights at The Model presents Roamer

Sat. 11 May 2024 10pm
Ticket €15

The Model Sligo is delighted to present a very special live Late Night event with Roamer.

Roamer brings together four of Ireland's most internationally active improvising musicians. Currently based in London, Cologne, Berlin and Dublin, all four musicians reunite regularly to compose and perform original music celebrating poetry and improvisation.

Vocalist Lauren Kinsella (Snowpoet) was awarded the UK Arts Foundation Scholarship 2017; saxophonist Matthew Halpin (Last Chance Dance) was the first Irish musician to receive the presidential scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music; Simon Jermyn (Wood River) is one of the most in-demand creative music bassists on both sides of the Atlantic; and Matthew Jacobson (Anna Mieke), a Fulbright Scholar, is a highly celebrated drummer and collaborator on the European music scene.

In 2020, they received an Arts Council Ireland Project Award to record their debut album Lost Bees, which was released on Diatribe Records in April 2022 and was called “an extraordinary record in the true sense of the word, full of meaning and mystery, unafraid of risk, at times unsettling, a joyous challenge to musical orthodoxy” in a five-star review in the Irish Times.

Each roamer has represented Ireland extensively on stages around the world and this group provides a unique opportunity for audiences to see what happens when they bring all this experience together into one "creative music supergroup".

All About Jazz
