After a string of sell-out shows and festival appearances in the UK and Ireland, Dylan Haskins and Lisa Hannigan’s live show-come-podcast ‘Soundings Holy Trinity’ joins forces with Sounds from a Safe Harbour to present: ‘Soundings from a Safe Harbour’. In a first for Soundings, Dylan & Lisa’s three guests are all from the same family. Siblings Bryce, Aaron and Jessica Dessner will share their stories and songs to inspire, alarm and humour in the surrounds of a disused bonded warehouse
in the Port of Cork, a space that has never before been opened to the public. Soundings is a show for the curious, the serious and the hilarious. Each live show is recorded and then released as a free podcast. Get an idea of what to expect at the festival by subscribing to the show on iTunes or at www.soundingspod.com
