SoFFT Nights will be returning to Dunderry Park, Co. Meath following sold-out events in October 2020. They will host a series of musical performances and well-being incentives beginning in March, and ending in June 2021. The first of its music acts to be announced are Cormac Begley, with special guests Bunoscionn and Lemoncello. They will perform 26th & 27th March 2021. Soda Blonde will perform with special guests Maija Sofia and Nava on the 16th & 17th of April, 2021.
“We held two concerts in October 2020 under Covid-19 restrictions with support from Dunderry Park and Meath Arts and they were a sold-out success," explains Natasha Duffy, co-founder of SoFFT Nights, "both in-person and online. We managed to do it safely and with social distancing without losing any of the magic. With this confidence, we have curated another six shows happening in 2021 between March and June. We are also curating a specially commissioned live performance from the hill of Tara for the Winter Solstice this year with help from the live performance grant scheme. We both found ourselves in dire times but we have just tried to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and get the shows on the road again!”
The event has a well-being element to its line-up as well. This is something important to the organisers Caroline Duke and Natasha Duffy. Having dealt with their own anxiety battles, they want to provide a space for people to learn about meditation, healing through dance, shamanism and talks on well-being.
Tickets are €67.00, and are on sale now.
