“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.
