Dublin-based but Derry-born Halferty is part of that pioneering cohort of Irish jazz musicians who heard the great Louis Stewart in the 1970s and realised that aspiring to the highest levels of artistry was possible for an Irish-based musician.

Over the years, the Derry man’s muse has led him from Stewart’s lucid be-bop to the post-Coltrane intricacies of electric guitarists such as John McLaughlin, John Abercrombie and Pat Metheny, and on to explore the tangled pathways that connect jazz with folk, Irish traditional, Brazilian and even Indian music.

Now based in Dublin, Tommy teaches jazz guitar at Dublin City University and maintains a busy performance schedule across Ireland and France.
