Sligo Jazz Project

“The Friday afternoon jam session at Source Sligo underlined the come-one-come-all nature of the SJP. Australian singer Aminah Hughes is shortly to release her debut album featuring the great guitarist Tommy Emmanuel…Well-known Sligo multi-instrumentalist Seamie O’Dowd guested in Aminah Hughes ensemble and played outstanding slide guitar on the Hughes original “You Don’t Need” – an old-school blues of some power. Hughes, a strong, soulful singer, brought real nuance to “Hold on my Love,” another original whose contours were evocative of singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell.”
