The Sligo Jazz Festival 2022 opening duo of this year’s festival met at the final of the Montreux Jazz Festival Guitar Competition in 2006. Björn Solli and John Moriarty have continued to play together since in various settings. Solli has played extensively in Norway with his own group Solid, as well as Seamus Blake, Aaron Parks and many others.

John Moriarty is at the forefront of jazz guitar in Ireland, having performed with Louis Stewart from the early 2000s and currently in groups led by Richie Buckley as well as his own quartet. In this setting the guitarists explore well-loved standards as well as original arrangements and compositions.

"An excellent player, dynamically varied and adventurous..." –
