Sea-themed cultural event as part of Songs from a Safe Harbour arts festival.
Stories from the Sea brings together a collection of artists & pioneers whose imagination and practice has been inspired by the power of the sea.

Stories from the Sea features conversations, reading, film and live music from a host of Irish and Icelandic explorers, all influenced by the pull of the deep, including Padraig Ó Duinnín (Meitheal Mara), Dr Clíona O’Carroll (Folklore UCC), Linda Buckley (Composer & Musician), Roisin Coyle (Multi-discipline Artist), Theo Dorgan (Poet & Author), Will Collins (Writer Song of the Sea) & Jófríður Ákadóttir (Musician).
