Collaboration and shared experiences are at the heart of Sounds From a Safe Harbour. This year, with the help of Quiet Lights, SFSH has invited the Irish folk music duo Ye Vagabonds to interact and respond to the residency and host the festival finale Lighthouse Constellations, Ye Vagabonds with special guests from the SFSH/37d03d residency.
Ye Vagabonds are brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn. They grew up in rural Carlow but moved to Dublin in 2012 and became known on the traditional Irish, blues and folk scenes in the city, playing folk songs as well as their own original material. Their blend of harmonic folk music is influenced by traditional Irish and European music, American old time, and the music of the 1960s folk revival.
