David MacKenzie

Classically trained and currently Principal Second Violin in the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, David's 30 year career has seen him take up posts in symphony and ballet orchestras across Europe. However, the last three years has seen him follow one of his earliest loves, the music of Stefan Grappelli. In early 2002, he teamed up with Dublin jazz pianist Josh Johnston and the pair have toured around Ireland since, building up an audience with their enjoyable, melodic music. As well as the swing jazz that formed the genesis of the union, they also use elements of Latin Jazz and Blues and the classical influence has an undeniable contribution too. In late 2004, the duo released their first CD, “A Minor Happiness”. In June 2008, the duo released their 2nd CD, “Notes Home”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
