Cairde Sligo Arts Festival (SAF) is set to return this July, with an extended programme of Irish and international writers, musicians, artists and performers.
Acclaimed author of The Argonauts, American genre-busting writer Maggie Nelson will be making her first ever Irish appearance at the festival, in an event that is sure to be a festival highlight. As ever, music will be a strong core at Cairde SAF, from a sublime double bill featuring two of the most distinctive voices in Irish folk: Lisa O’Neill and Seamus Fogarty; to celebrated Australian classical guitarist Craig Ogden performing in the beautiful surrounds of the Factory Performance Space. Cairde SAF have this year collaborated with Brokentalkers in association with Hawk’s Well Theatre on a new work Uprooted. Developed and performed by a culturally diverse group of community performers living in Sligo, and based on their personal experiences, Uprooted explores the experiences of new communities in Ireland.
