Our newest artist-curated jazz series, Tobin’s Run on 51, returns with a special tribute to Riverside Records, the American jazz record company that previously inhabited the home of Irish Arts Center at 553 West 51st Street. Founded by Orrin Keepnews and Bill Grauer, the label played an important role in the jazz record industry and represented jazz and blues veterans such as Thelonious Monk, Randy Weston, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Charlie Byrd, Johnny Griffin, Wes Montgomery, and folk artists Bascom Lamar Lunsford, Obray Ramsey, George Pegram, and Walter Parham.

The award-winning Irish vocalist, songwriter and composer Christine Tobin and acclaimed jazz guitarist Phil Robson will bring together some of New York’s best Irish and international musicians to awaken the spirits that will forever inhabit our historic home.



“There’s a kind of alchemy at work, particularly in how [Tobin] uses her warmly distinctive voice, malleable, poised phrasing and impeccable intonation to get inside the material and make it personal.”
 —The Irish Times
