“What a delightful, colourful week, full of character, classless, ageless, bounding with joy and spirit and good humour….connecting, encouraging self-expression, interaction… opening doors that maybe some thought would forever remain closed, and others didn’t even know were shut tight”… MIKE WALKER, SJP GUITAR TUTOR 2015 & 2016

“You can have the faculty giving you masterclasses in the morning, eating lunch with you, go to their concerts, they play with you in the jam sessions, so its really inclusive, and its just a very feelgood vibe. Come to Sligo Jazz, its worth whatever it takes to get here”… Noah Fishman (Maine, USA), participant 2010 and 2013.
