JOSEPH LEIGHTON TRIO - Artist on stage around 9pm, playing 2 live sets

JOSEPH LEIGHTON

Guitarist Joseph Leighton has been hailed as one of Ireland’s brightest new jazz talents. Starting out as a teenage rock prodigy in his hometown of Derry, he became interested in jazz and began to focus a lot of his playing and studies on that. Over the next few years his teachers would also include guitar icons Jesse van Ruller, Mike Walker and Peter Bernstein, following awards from Moving On Music, PRSF and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. He also attended the Banff Centre’s Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music in Canada, under the direction of Vijay Iyer in 2016.

Joseph has toured as a sideman to many exciting countries in the world including Vietnam, Singapore, Lebanon and Jamaica (where half of his ancestry belongs to). He leads this trio, featuring two of London’s rising rhythm section stars in Tom Sheen (Bass) and Ethan Sweeting (Drums).
