A special podcast episode that looks back at The ShakingBog’s Festival last September. Presenting a montage of excerpts from the festival programme this podcast is just a small taster of what happened over that magical weekend. A stellar line-up of artists and expert naturalists gathered in the Glencree Valley to share poetry, prose, art, music, conversation, workshops and nature trails. It was a wholehearted celebration of the alchemy that happens when art and nature meet and we hope that this episode reflects something of the warmth, energy and hopefulness of the festival.
