The event will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of October.
Sofft Productions is presenting 'SOFFT Nights', a socially distant concert series and holistic experiences in Dunderry Park, Co. Meath.
Patrons will have access to the grounds from 4 pm and have time to explore the lover's lake walk, megalithic cairn, forest trails, beautiful food from the wonderful Home Fries, and freshly brewed coffees and teas. The event will then evolve into a concert under a beautiful, socially distanced stretch tent with three enigmatic acts.
There will also be an outdoor shamanic drumming journey with Martin Duffy in the middle of the forest, theatrical monologues along the lake and pianists to be discovered in nooks and crannies around the grounds.
This event is being produced by Sofft productions, a new initiative by old friends Caroline Duke and Natasha Duffy with collaboration by Conor Jacob a production and lighting designer. The threesome found themselves all without work and staring down the barrel of an empty Autumn, but have instead invited the Spirit of Folk to come with them on this new journey.
The event will be filmed live and streamed via our online partner The Lock Inn and will be an immersive, visceral experience. People can buy tickets to the online version and watch from the comfort of their own home.
"The event is both a concert series and an experience," said SOFFT Nights co-founder Natasha Duffy. "Along with the musical acts, there will be bonfires where you can roast your own s'mores, storytelling in a megalithic cairn and lovers' walk around the beautiful lake. Dunderry Park is an immersion into nature and soul and that is what we want these nights to be about. Our plan is that every musician, act and worker will be paid for their time and we have priced the tickets to reflect this since it is only a 100 person event. We think that people will get behind it."
