More info on the gig below:

Red Bull Music Academy presents Kerri Chandler live at the Stiff Kitten on Friday 2nd March.

Kerri Chandler is a vortex where tradition and innovation meet. Tradition as in the soulful roots of Jersey house, innovation as in the streamlined, sparse arrangements and shrewd use of technology. Kerri masters rhythm and space. A diverse night of music awaits those attending including support by Danny Simpson and Chris McCormick. Tickets are priced at £6 in advance and £7 on the night and are available through www.ticketmaster.ie Kerri Chandler is in town as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Workshops to promote and launch the Academy’s call for applications for the 2012 International workshops in New York next Autumn. The events take place in Belfast on 2nd March and in Dublin on 3rd March. 

The Harlem Café, Belfast and No 5 Spencer Dock, Dublin will play host to this very special forum where innovative musical figures will share their own prospective of life in the musical fast lane. Joining Kerri is Just Blaze is a hip hop producer from Paterson, NJ. The CEO of Fort Knocks Entertainment is best known for producing hits from Jay-Z’s Blueprint, Blueprint 2 and The Black Album . Details will be announced over the coming weeks at www.redbull.ie  Tickets for the workshop are available on a first come first basis through ashlee@admarketingevents.com.

More info on RBMA coming soon.
