About Andrea Jones Quartet (jazz) & Jio
The Andrea Jones Quartet is a collaborative group led by tenor saxophonist Andrea Jones that features the cream of the crop of emerging young talents in Irish jazz. Graduates of the DCU Centre for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Andrea is joined by Patrick Keegan on electric guitar, Aidan Gray on electric bass, and Michael McCarthy on drums. As composers, each member brings you into a different sound-world comprising group textures and improvisations, expansive narrative themes, and both short and long form compositions inspired by a wide range of jazz; from Monk to Mark Turner.
A vinyl set of slow-mo selections from Jio will follow. Found regularly behind the counter at All City. Co-brains behind the label/party Pear with Fio Fa, while also in (co)charge of labels Arís and P.U.P. A DJ when called upon in clubs, festivals and other fine establishments such as Rinse FM, NTS and DDR. A man of many styles, most of them summed up with the neat term ‘dance’ – while also a small dose of ‘yacht rock’ for good measure.

‘Flowers are not only beautiful, but they could reflect the passing of time, and how we respond to an ever-changing future. There is beauty not only in an open flower, but also a flower’s bud which holds the energy of life as it opens towards the future. Together with flowers, humans are vital parts of nature and arranging Ikebana expresses this awareness.’ – Tomoko Sempo Yanagi
Tomoko Sempo Yanagi holds professor status with the Ikenobo School of Ikebana. Experienced in Ikebana since childhood. Her first public Ikebana demonstration was in California in 1989. After she moved to the UK in 1998, she exhibited her Ikebana works and conducted workshops at various places and occasions including The Embassy of Japan, Hammersmith and Fulham Flower Show, Google European HQ (Dublin), Cisco Poland, Flower Council of Holland, and a range of secondary schools in London. She was awarded a bronze medal at the Royal Horticultural Society, London Flower Show in 2001. Educated and lived in Japan, the US and the UK, she is also a mother of Irish/Japanese boys.

Dublin Bus Route 37 will drop you at Castleknock Gate (stop number 1669).
Enter Phoenix Park and take the narrow pedestrian path to your immediate right. Walk down this path until you reach the road, and turn right to see the gates of Farmleigh. This is about a 15 minute walk. On a rainy day, it may be muddy and a longer route along roads may be preferred.
Farmleigh is inside the Phoenix Park. There are 300 free car spaces on site.
We encourage all festival goers to prioritise the parking needs of people with access or mobility issues, and take public transport wherever possible.
It will not be possible to park on White’s Road as Garda traffic restrictions will be in place. Please be wary of sat-nav! There is a 5-7 minute walk from Farmleigh car park to the House, Gallery and Gardens. Full driving directions are here.
There are several Dublin Bike stations close to the shuttle bus stop on Parkgate Street.
