Theatre Dublin

Back by popular demand, trumpet virtuoso Joe Gransden returns to Dublin, this time in a more-intimate jazz quintet setting. Hailing from a family full of gifted musicians, Joe’s introduction to music came early on through his father, a gifted singer and pianist. His grandfather was a trumpeter of merit, playing professionally his whole life throughout New York. Today, Joe stays busy at home and abroad, performing 2-3 gigs a week in Atlanta and surrounding counties.


To cap an amazing season, the Joe Gransden Quintet pairs up with legendary blues songstress Francine Reed. Ms. Reed began her career as the opening act for artists such as Miles Davis, Etta James, Smokey Robinson and others. Starting in 1985, she started touring with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band, and still tours with him when the schedule permits. Joe Gransden is her go-to bandleader when she is on the East Coast. The two of them show wonderful chemistry onstage, and will perform an evening of soulful blues, swing & jazz that is second to none.
