On Friday October 5th 2018, Near FM recorded a night of intimate music and spoken word performance in the wonderfully atmospheric setting of St. John the Baptist church in Drumcondra.

New Sounds in an Old Place is a night of new and contemporary sounds, hosted up to 6 times a year and curated by the arts collective GlasDrum. The acts on the night were the spellbinding close harmonic folk styling’s of Ye Vagabonds, multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and songwriter Dowry and Natalya O’Flaherty an emerging voice on the Irish spoken word scene.

In this special radio programme we will hear performances from all the acts as well as interviews with the musicians, the organisers and members of the audience.

With special thanks to all the acts and to Martin Byrne, Patricia Flynn and all in GlasDrum and Garth Bunting and all in St. John the Baptist church in Drumcondra.
