Join a lively group of musicians, sound artists, and composers for five evenings of performance, dialogue, sonic experimentation, special cocktails and unexpected collaborations. Curated by Úna Monaghan and Gascia Ouzounian, two of Belfast’s leading experimental music mavens, JamJar will feature some of the most captivating voices on today’s circuit: musicians who are breaking ground in pop-rock, folk and electronica, soundscape artists who draw inspiration from the acoustic environment, and artists who defy genres, working between sound, image and coding. The evenings will feature live interviews, collaborations between artists, audience Q&A’s, and surprise happenings.
For its first season, JamJar is pleased to present artists from Ireland, Scotland England, Portugal, USA and South Korea: Isobel Anderson, Helena Hamilton, Gaze is Ghost, Cathy Lane, Una Lee, Matilde Meireles, Katharine Philippa, Caroline Pugh and Anna Weisling.
Join us on the last Sunday of the month from April-September* for a packed jam-jar of musical and visual delights. (*There will be no JamJar in July)
