Scott Flanigan Quartet featuring Meilana Gillard
Ireland/USA
Late Lounge @ The Martello, Sunday, 5th May 11pm
€10 | Tickets on Door
50% discount with tickets from earlier shows

Emerging Belfast pianist Scott Flanigan made a name for himself as a side-man for demanding taskmasters including Van Morrison, before stepping out of the shadows with his own hard-hitting piano trio a number of years ago.

Now with a new project and new music, Flanigan has found his foil in a quartet setting alongside hugely talented saxophonist Meilana Gillard.

The Ohio-raised tenor saxophonist first emerged in the early 2000s as a rising star of the New York scene. She was a member of the all-female big band Diva, and worked with a host of heavyweights including Christian McBride and Greg Osby, who released her debut album Day One on his Inner Circle Music label in back in 2009.

A thoughtful pianist and arranger who acknowledges the influence of the great Brad Mehldau in his approach, Flanigan’s is establishing himself as one of the bright new jazz pianists on this island.
