With ‘Ducks and Geese’ to their credit, their second album “Pelican Crossing” is on general release.

The members of Blue Jar come from a mix of backgrounds. After over twenty years each on the music circuit, they have combined their specialties, arrange, compose and entertain. Since their first gig-a Garden Party for H.R.H The Prince of Wales they have specialised in corporate work - They are now ‘doing’ the live gig and festival circuit, following the success of their album, and recent festival performances at the Cork Jazz Festival, Bray Jazz Festival, Enniskillen Arts Festival, Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, and Balbriggan Arts Festival.
