It’s the party the Rebel County is world famous for.
And while Cork City comes alive to the sounds of the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival over the October bank holiday, the seaside town of Kinsale is throwing its own shindig for those who like their brass hot with a salty flavour – complete with a jazz parade.
This year, the New York Brass Band will depart from The Spaniard, about a half mile from the centre of town, at 3pm on Sunday, October 28th.
The band will march down into Kinsale and through the town, finishing up in The Trident Hotel at World’s End on Pier Road.
Bring a cosy coat and catch them at either venue or on Kinsale’s winding streets.
The Guinness Kinsale Jazz ‘Fringe’ Festival just announced a line-up of more than 100 free gigs in the town for the weekend, including New Orleans-style group Gentlemen & Gangsters, who will headline at various venues.
More than 20 pubs and restaurants will be hosting music from lunchtime until late into the night so check your favourite spots for their Fringe Festival line-up.
