Jaskane formed in 2012 as ‘Jaskane Cafe Trio’ performing throughout Clare in diverse settings.   ‘Jaskane Cafe Trio Live’ was self recorded in 2013.  The second album ‘Lumen’ was recorded in the prestigious Grouse Lodge Studio,  engineered and mixed by Alex Borwick (Irish Memory Orchestra, The Young Folk). Jaskane showcases a unique blend of violin, oboe and guitar while playing an eclectic mix of musical genres.  From Russian folk dances to Argentinian tango; iconic film themes to contemporary Irish folk, the trio’s original arrangements and harmonisations provide an evocative experience for the listener.

Violinist Karten Kelly’s influences span from the simplicity of baroque string music to modern contemporary scores.  Her performances include orchestral works, chamber music and lead violin for the much loved musicals. A former violin teacher, Karen has now established a career as a music therapist.  Bringing her classical roots to the group, she shows a particular propensity for tangos.

Etain McCooey has developed a uniquely ‘Irish’ oboe style by combining her classical oboe training with her knowledge of tin whistle style and technique.  She plays with the Irish Memory Orchestra, works as a session musician countrywide and was commissioned to compose music for the Hidden History TV se4ries.  She aims to display the versatility of the oboe and cor anglais through Jaskane’s repertoire.

Jason Noone is a guitarist and producer with a background in rock, blues and improvisation.  He is also a qualified music therapist.  His sound complements the trio’s melodic and harmonic tapestry while also diversifying with intricate solos and riffs.  His guitar style provides the rhythmic underpinning of Jaskane’s distinctive sound.

Under 18’s can attend this event for €5 when accompanied by an adult as part of the Leath / Leath initiative.
