Bandfield - Mardyke 300 music concerts
2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the construction of the public recreation area of the Mardyke in Cork city. To mark this unique moment in the city’s history, the Glucksman invited artist Deirdre Breen to create a large scale artwork at the site of the original bandstand in front of the UCC Ceremonial Gates on Western Road. A free programme of music events are planned for the coming months that celebrate the Mardyke’s long history as a civic space and venue for outdoor performances.
On Saturday 26 October, the Glucksman gallery spaces will be filled with sounds of jazz as we welcome The Underscore Orkestra for the Cork Jazz Festival. The Underscore Orkestra play a blend of Balkan, Klezmer, Hot Jazz, Swing and Americana music, both original and traditional. Their performances evoke the old world and the new and influences are far and wide, ranging from New Orleans Jazz, to Eastern European, Klezmorim Music, Manouche Swing, and Acoustic Metal. This concert is guaranteed to get you up and moving!!
Bandfield and the Mardyke 300 celebrations are supported by Cork City Council.
