Drummer David Lyttle is Ireland's most celebrated jazz musician of today. He's the island's only MOBO Award nominee and has made appearances in over twenty countries, including recent artist residencies in China and the U.S. Growing up in a prominent musical family in Co. Armagh, he's gone on to collaborate with global icons of jazz and hip hop, and his latest album was described by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘one of the best listening experiences you're likely to have all year'. At this year's festival he will perform with his new trio featuring two of the UK's jazz stars: Scottish pianist Steve Hamilton and U.S. bassist Michael Janisch.
