Sligo Jazz Project 23-29th July is one of Europe's most unique festivals. It combines a world class summer school for jazz musicians with a full blown jazz festival with some stunning acts. Guest of Honour 2012 is Kenny Wheeler, composer, trumpeter and one of modern jazz's most celebrated figures. Now aged 82, Kenny makes rare appearances so his concert with the Somethin' Else Quartet featuring John Taylor and Diana Torto with special guest bassist John Goldsby will be a treat. 2012 sees the return of bass legend Rufus Reid to Sligo for the first time since 2007.
Also appearing at the festival are Zakir Hussein's Masters of Percussion, Phronesis and Femi Temowo. More TBA.
