Bass students worldwide are invited to the Sligo Jazz Project 2010 in beautiful “Yeats Country” in the northwest of Ireland, where they can study for 6 days with two international bass masters, John Goldsby (double bass) and Michael Manring (electric bass). A world class faculty gives daily masterclasses and workshops from July 20-25, and the accompanying festival hosts evening concerts followed by jam sessions every night, plus concerts by visiting guest acts and a fun pub/restaurant fringe. Sligo Jazz Project, directed by Irish bassist Eddie Lee, has hosted one of Europe’s finest summer schools and festivals since 2005. Past visitors to the Sligo festival include Rufus Reid, Avishai Cohen, Dominique DiPiazza, Reggie Washington and Todd Coolman.This year its the turn of John Goldsby, educator, writer, double bassist with Cologne’s WDR big band and veteran of Aebersold summer schools, and on electric bass Michael Manring, one of the world’s most innovative solo electric bassists, also an experienced clinician and riveting solo performer.
Great accommodation deals are available and summer school fees are as little as €350 for the week’s tuition, with free admission for participants to all evening concerts.
