is famous throughout the world for its musical and instrumental teaching. Here the Chamber Philharmonia continuously
draws on the talent emerging from the master classes of the professors Viktor Tretjakov, Maria Kliegel, Robert
Winn, Frans Helmerson, Zalhar Bron, Ralph Manno and others. In total, over 100 members have now performed in
the constantly changing ensemble that is the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. The musicians are carefully selected

like Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This special mix guarantees diverse entertainment
of the highest order.

The Celtic Tenors – three tenors, one voice.

The only tenor group with a truly global audience…whether playing a neighbourhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, London or Shanghai, professional and most of all, good humoured performances are assured. They genuinely love what they do and you’ll see that shine through in each rendition of beautiful Celtic songs like the haunting Danny Boy and exhilarating classics like Nessum Dorma.

Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson offer more than beautiful voices and musical knowledge. Comfortable in all genres from classical and folk to Irish and pop, they bring their audience on a real musical voyage. The Celtic Tenors continue to break new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge. With this pioneering approach, they’ve welcomed a wider audience and fostered a fresh and invigorating style which has won them both critical acclaim and so many fans the world over.

ISOTOPE  Jazz Band –  May 2017

ISOTOPE Jazz Band – May 2017

Sat  27 May 2017       8.00pm         The Mall Arts Centre, Youghal


Isotope  Jazz Band

ISOTOPE  has its origins in the 1970’s. For many years now, the core has consisted of: Richie Buckley on tenor sax, his cousin, Hugh Buckley on guitar, Myles Drennan on piano, often joined by Dave Fleming, on double bass. This year sees them joined by an old friend, John Philip Murray on drums.

From its earliest days, the band’s material has been mostly jazz standards and this is still the root. In addition, new material by Irish composers including Hugh and Richie gives the band a wealth of colour and excitement.



Richie, a self-taught saxophone player, is internationally recognised as one of Ireland’s leading jazz performers. “He has a world reputation amongst saxophonists” (Irish Times, 1999) and is a musician whose “playing manages to be simultaneously passionate and gentle, romantic and elegiac.” (Sunday Independent, 2001)


Hugh is a Dublin born and based, self-taught guitarist, composer, arranger, educator and author. He has performed throughout Europe, the U.S., Argentina and China, working as a sideman and also leading his own groups. He has performed with a wide array of internationally acclaimed artists.


Myles has been prominent on the Jazz scene as both a pianist and drummer for many years. He is a favourite with many of the top-line musicians from Ireland, Europe and the U.S. His work can be heard on many recordings.


Dave is a popular choice bass player, particularly among vocalists, for his sensitivity and extensive knowledge of the standards repertoire. His thirty years in the business has seen him playing with the leading Irish musicians and a wide range of international luminaries in the world of music.


John Philip is a Dublin Born, Cork based drummer with many years of experience, playing jazz with many of the leading Irish musicians.

Supported by the Cork Arts Council.
