Jazz Concert featuring the premiere of new work by Donegal bassist/composer Conor Murray. Described by the Times U.K. as a bassist who “plays with energy and a firm tone across the instrument’s full range”

25-year-old, bassist/composer Conor Murray grew up in rural County Donegal in a musical family, and began pursuing an interest in jazz from an early age. Since then he has studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland under the direction of Tommy Smith where he gained experience performing with some of Scotland’s top musicians. After graduating Conor has been able to tour and perform extensively in Britain, Europe, Russia and Morocco, and perform with artists such as David Lyttle, Lucian Gray, Michael Kanan, Christine Tobin, Phil Robson and Tony Kofi. He currently co-leads a trio with his brother Micheal Murray, who toured and released their debut record ‘Murrays Law’ in 2021 on Lyte Records.

A recipient of the Arts Council of Ireland’s Agility Award Conor has been able to write an entirely new set of compositions written and arranged for the quintet with the goal of capturing the ‘spirit’ and energy that he hears in the music of some of his musical heroes.

His new project features an exciting and dynamic group of musicians alto saxophonist Micheal Murray, tenor saxophonist Meilana Gillard, guitarist Phil Robson and drummer Doug Hough and will be premiered for the first time at the Regional Cultural Centre.
