Brilliant Corners 2017 - Belfast

Brilliant Corners, festival of jazz, celebrates the big 5

There are five candles on the Brilliant Comers birthday cake this year! Where does time go? They’re back with another incredible line-up featuring some of the most varied, exciting, and interesting music around.

This year they pay homage to Charles Mingus with I Am Three, get experimental with Sirene 1009 and FAINT+, showcase local talent with Ronan Guilfoyle’s Hands, Organ Failure featuring Jean Toussaint, and the Joseph Leighton trio. They go full prog-rock with Belgian guitar trio Dans Dans and Norwegian guitar-bass-drum blasters Hedvig Mollestad Trio, before going out with a bang courtesy of Robocobra Quartet and Strobes.

There’ll be films too, with the Belfast Film Festival once again screening some not to be missed flicks at the Bean Bag Cinema.

If you have been before, you’ll know what to expect; amazing, surprising, life-changing music. If you haven’t, they hope you’ll come along and experience Belfast’s only jazz festival in all its bijou glory!
