The annual Cork Jazz festival is continuing this weekend.
The first festival began back 1978 and it has since gained a worldwide profile.
Festival Manager Jennifer Gleeson says it is key to the Cork social calendar.
She said: "It is one of those highly anticipated cultural events and to be quite honest before I became involved in the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival I probably under estimated how popular it was and not just from people of Cork.
"We've had such a big interest from people overseas and people across the country aswell."
