Nigel Mooney announces national tour

Irish jazz and blues man Nigel Mooney kicks off his album launch tour in Dublin tomorrow

A night of quality indigenous jazz and blues is on offer tomorrow, June 9, at Dublin's Crawdaddy venue when Nigel Mooney launches his debut album All My Love's In Vain.

No stranger to the Dublin jazz scene, Mooney was a founding member of 80s trailblazers The Gripewater Blues Band, whose career highlights include playing support for B.B. King and working with such legends as Dr. John, Louisiana Red and Lowell Fulson.

As guitarist, vocalist and bandleader - not to mention composer of his largely original debut album - Mooney is now set to take his debut album on a promotional tour of Ireland.

Joined on stage by Greg Felton (piano), Ruaidhri O'Donovan (bass) and Shane O'Donovan (drums), the Nigel Mooney Quartet will play the following tour dates:

June 9 @ Crawdaddy, Dublin (with support from Richie Buckley)

June 11 @ The Breffni Arms Hotel, Arva, Co. Cavan

June 19 @ Loughcrew Jazz & Blues Festival, Co. Meath
