ACI Bursary award to write for Métier
Ian has just been awarded an Artist's Bursary by the Arts Council of Ireland. This award will allow him to undertake a period of occasional study with one of Ireland's leading jazz musicians, Ronan Guilfoyle, and will result in the composition of new music for Ronan's quintet, Métier. Ian is delighted with the award, as writing for a jazz ensemble has been one of his goals for some time.
