Of the three jazz festivals coming up in Ireland soon, the Bray Jazz festival while not the biggest festival in the world, certainly has the best line-up with John Scofield, Fred Hersch and Anja Lechner among the artists heading to Bray, a seaside town in county Wicklow.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year the festival runs from 3-5 May. Full details at https://www.brayjazz.com
