The Lismore Suite Line-up – Sounds from a Safe Harbour
The Lismore Suite is a unique event which will serve as a precursor to the inaugural Sounds from a Safe Harbour festival, which runs in Cork from 17 – 20 September.
The Gothic architecture and lush green surroundings of Lismore Castle in Waterford will provide the backdrop as a small group of musicians spend a week in close quarters working on collaborations which will then be performed for the public on the evening of 12 September. Alongside these new collaborations, those attending will also be treated to performances of existing works from the participants.
The artists residing in each other’s pockets for the week include festival curator Bryce Dessner, along with his brother Aaron (both of The National), Lisa Hannigan, several members of Crash Ensemble and acclaimed Canadian violinist Yuki Numata Resnick.
Glimpses into this innovative take on the creative process will be available through the festival’s social media channels over the course of the week in question and tickets for the performances on September 12 are available from soundsfromasafeharbour.com. Priced at €50, tickets for The Lismore Suite are not included as part of your ticket for the main festival.
