Sligo Jazz Project
Sligo International Jazz Project features workshops, masterclasses and jam sessions with some of the world’s finest jazz educators and musicians.
Plans are advanced for this summer's virtual festival and we are delighted to share performances from the Hawk’s Well Theatre stage. This will be the biggest ever online showcase of Irish jazz artists, including Umbra, Rhythm Method, Sankhara, Conor Gulilfoyle Octet performing The Birth of the Cool, Paul Frost’s Music of Mingus, David Lyttle and Phil Robson, Scott Flanigan Trio, Origin Story, Michael Buckley, Murray Brothers Trio, and the curiously titled NCT (Neilsen Cusack Trio), which has Sligo guitarist Mike Nielsen, his son Oskar on drums and veteran Wicklow pianist Andy Cusack, in a swinging trio which has an age gap of 68 years between youngest and oldest member!
The festival will also be accompanied by a mini virtual summer school with micro-lessons and zoom workshops, all between July 20 and 25.
