The Project's annual summer school and festival has grown into one of Europe's premier events in jazz education and performance !
Get ready for a whopping 2021 Festival Lineup, presenting a programme of predominately Irish artists recorded on video and audio to the highest level.
Sligo Jazz Project (SJP) virtual festival and summer school, has a fab lineup of festival acts recorded exclusively for the event in Sligo, Dublin, Wicklow, London, Granada and New York. The festival will be a huge showcase of Irish jazz artists of all ages, North and South.
“We believe this will be the biggest showcase ever presented of Irish jazz artists online”, says SJP’s artistic director Eddie Lee. “We realise the past 16 months has been a terrible time for musicians everywhere, with many of our top musicians forced to look to other professions to make a living. It is a real tragedy for our arts community and despite the PUP payments, threatens our arts scene in a really serious way. Thanks to the support of the Arts Council and our other funders and patrons, we have recorded a great selection of Irish acts in June on the Hawks Well Theatre stage for broadcast at next month’s festival. Every artist will receive a broadcast-quality video of their performance as well as payment for the event, which we hope will help them come out of this pandemic and reembark on their music careers with the support of valuable, high quality promotional material.”
