The Prelude to Sounds From A Safe Harbour is a unique event, which takes place on the evening of September 12 ​at the end of a week-long residency period in the stately Lismore Castle, will include Bryce and Aaron Dessner (The National), Lisa Hannigan, members of internationally renowned new music group Crash Ensemble and virtuosic Canadian violinist, Yuki Numata Resnick.

Over the course of the week, the artists will begin collaborations in the tranquil, beautiful grounds of the Castle – formerly home to Sir Walter Raleigh and Robert Boyle – courtesy of Lismore Castle Arts. This week of collaboration culminates in a very special performance inside the normally private castle, showcasing new material developed throughout the residency period, as well as performing existing works.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a once in a lifetime evening of collaboration between artists at their absolute creative peak.
