Soundings Holy Trinity at Festival of Writing & Ideas, Borris House

After a string of sell out shows in Dublin, Kilkenny and London, Soundings: Holy Trinity returns to the Festival of Writing & Ideas at Borris House in Carlow on Saturday 6th June for another show of story and song with guests Victoria Glendinning, Katie Hickman, Rick Stroud & Fionn Regan

Good storytelling is all about light and dark. In this live show-come-podcast, broadcaster Dylan Haskins and acclaimed singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan are joined by a different Holy Trinity of guests each night who will share their three stories to inspire, to alarm and to humour. Each section is bridged with live performance of songs on those same themes from our musical guest. Soundings Holy Trinity is a show for the curious, the serious and the hilarious.

The Festival of Writing & Ideas has become known for its casual, friendly atmosphere, and for its extraordinary line up of speakers. It takes place within the magical surroundings of Borris House, the seat of the High Kings of Leinster, situated at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains with the River Barrow meandering by. Spilling out into pubs and halls of this idyllic village, the weekend 5th-7th June 2015 will once again be one of stimulating dialogue and discussion, gathering together intriguing international minds – historians, novelists, journalists, film-makers, poets, theatre directors, war correspondents, biographers, artists and political commentators.
