Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 04 Apr - 05 Apr

Show Time: 8.15pm

Tickets: €15 - €12

Pinto – “the imaginary equine carrier of an imaginary friend, created to help an imaginary hero” – are an improvising trio formed by saxophonist/clarinetist Robin Fincker, guitarist/electric bass player Simon Jermyn and drummer/guitarist/vocalist Seán Carpio.

Based in Toulouse, New York and Dublin respectively, this week long residency at Project Arts Centre will allow a rare opportunity for them to devise a set of new music, culminating in two concerts in the Cube on Friday and Saturday evening.

Each member of the trio is independently recognised for their multi-faceted work, operating across many genres. With this open residency they will aim to create a broad concert experience, one that is generated not only from their varied interests, but also from a direct interaction with the visiting audience during the week.

Pinto will be hosting free open rehearsals from 6-8pm, Monday 31, March through to Thursday, 3 April. All are free to join. The group will host these open rehearsals in the Cube over the course of the week, allowing regular audience interaction, feedback and short performance opportunities in order to prepare for two concerts.

We hope you can join them and be a part of generating this music.


Company history

Pinto have been performing since 2012. They have toured the south of France and Ireland including the Galway Jazz Festival and the TXUS Festival.

Their eponymous first album is due for release this year under the English label  Loop Recordings.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
