Our 2022 festival

Our 2022 festival took place from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th September 2022. This unique festival under the artistic direction of pianist Finghin Collins brought some tempting events to South East Ireland. Our artists for 2022 included Jonathan Plowright, Tamara Licheli, Finghin Collins, François-Xavier Poizat, Dmytro Choni, Máire Carroll and The Albion Quartet. The famous American jazz pianist Craig Taborn was be the star of the Jazz Piano Day, but unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute for family reasons. He was replaced by Vadim Neselovskyi, a Ukrainian living in the States, who happened to be finishing a tour in Europe. Greg Felton and his trio, Origin Story, also performed several times during the Jazz Day. Altogether a very satisfying five days.

Our 2024 programme

Our 2024 festival features an outstanding lineup of artists, including Paul Lewis, Steven Osborne, Yukine Kuroki, Sofya Gulyak, Michael McHale, Eoín Fleming, Trio Rodin and our Artistic Director Finghin Collins. View our full programme on our What’s on page.

Our festival story

In 2006 our piano festival began with a clear vision, to celebrate the piano and invite world-class pianists to perform in our local town of New Ross. Year on year we host an exciting programme of piano concerts, featuring original collaborations between our artists across a variety of classical genres, plus a whole day dedicated to jazz piano.
