Cork Jazz Festival Special: Friday line-up

Susanna - Triskel Christchurch at 8pm
The jazz is upon us again and the line-up has never been as populated - nor diverse - as the programme laid out before us for October 2012.
From dream-pop duos and Scandinavian balladeers to the more traditional big brass bands and lithe-fingered piano maestros, all tastes are catered for across a range of Cork bars, venues and halls.
