JEFF BALLARD is one of the standout jazz drummers of his generation, a humming engine of polyrhythm and an ace of earthy texture. He is best known for his work behind leaders like Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, and Brad Mehldau.

Kate Ellis is a versatile musician dedicated to the performance and exploration of all new music. She is cellist and Artistic Director of Crash Ensemble – Ireland’s leading new music group.

Stephen James Smith is a Dublin poet and playwright central to the rise of the vibrant spoken word scene in Ireland today and has been a consistent front-runner of performance poetry for several years.

Jeff will perform a 30-40min set with each of these artists.

“…one of the leading modern voices on his instrument”
– New York Times on Jeff Ballard






SEAN CARPIO is a jazz drummer with many, many more strings to his bow. From upbeat instrumental and vocal projects like The Wowos to conceptual art pieces and improvisation.  With constant collaborations on the international circuit, he shares his time between Copenhagen and Dublin and is currently working on six new recordings to be released next year.

For his performance at eat:ith:ceoil he will be joined by a number of friends and some Thelonious Monk tributes.

“Seán Carpio may be the finest drummer ever produced here”
– The Irish Times
