When the last strains of the music faded out, and the audience moved into the night, their talk of the show's excellence filled the sonic gap left behind by the music. At the Riverside Brian Byrne moved among the crowd. Accepting their praise with thanks and gratitude. No one was more grateful though, than the audience. Grateful for the opportunities presented by Sligo Jazz Project. Nowhere else would people get the chance to shake the show-star's hand. To tell him how much the music meant to them. At SJP however that was not only the mission, it was the point. To strip away the layers of misconception that separate performers and viewers. So as to reveal the common humanity between the two groups. And make the future changing of the guard possible.
