Alexander Hawkins, Piano-MusicTown
It's almost four decades since The Hugh Lane Gallery opened its doors on Sundays for the public to enjoy free performances from a range of Irish and international musicians.
What better way to celebrate the big 40 than with a whole series of concerts as part of the MusicTown Festival.
The week will kick off with a double bill on the first Sunday - followed by a concert every lunchtime (bar Monday) until its denouement on the final Sunday 19.
The first concert (Sunday 12th April at Noon) will feature British jazz pianist Alexander Hawkins (in association with the Improvised Music Company). Alexander Hawkins is a composer, pianist, organist, and bandleader who has forged an exceptionally unique style of music. His distinctive sound is borne of marrying his love of improvised music with his simultaneous fascination with composition and structure.
