Launch of the 20th Bealtaine Festival, including a talk on Active Citizenship by guest speaker Rory Cleary from Active Retirement Ireland, plus music with Gay McIntyre and John Trotter. The Derry alto saxophone player and clarinettist is one of the living legends of the Irish and UK jazz and showband scene. Hugely admired by the likes of Nat King Cole (who once asked him move to America and join his band), Humphrey Lyttleton, Acker Bilk and Kenny Ball, Gay has been performing, touring, teaching and living jazz music for over 60 years. Gay will be accompanied by his longtime friend John Trotter on trombone, violin, accordion and vocals.
