You are invited to a day of Jazz, Blues Food and Fun at Nancy Blakes to raise funds for Andreas Varady

Andreas Varady is 12 years old, a Jazz guitar prodigy with an unbelievable natural ability
You may have seen him busking down at the market place or playing a top class gig with Ireland's leading contemporary drummer David Lyttle at SpeakeasyJazz in The Rowing Club...

Well Andreas has been invited to study for two weeks at New Yorks most prestigious Skidmore college of music this summer.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Andreas to develop his talent and fine tune his already far advanced skill as a Jazz musician.

We want to help him get there.

We are holding a benefit, a day of of good food and great music in Nancy Blakes on Sunday May 23rd.

From 3pm Limerick finest Blues Jazz and Funk musicians will take the floor in Nancy blakes and stream top quality music while the lovely folks in Nancys dish out a delicious Sunday barbeque.

Andreas of course will play a set or two to showcase his virtuosity, so if you haven't seen him, make it your business to catch him!

There will be buckets going around for donations for you to give what you can towards this gesture of goodwill to Andreas.

A talent like Andreas' doesn't come along very often and he definately deserves to be nurtured and brought to his fullest ability.

Andreas and his family have been in Ireland and indeed Limerick for 4 years now, and he has been blowing us away with his superb musicality on a regular basis.

Please, forward this email, tell your friends and come on down to enjoy a crackin day of ceol agus craic and give a helping hand to Limerick own little Django.
