KINDRED – YHRF at ALS19

We are so delighted to announce ‘KINDRED’  – the truly special Young Hearts Run Free strand of the programme at this year’s festival, which runs in and amongst the pastoral grandeur of Killyon Manor, Aug 16th – 18th

Young Hearts are a loose collective of kind souls and minds, spearheaded by the irrepressible one woman wonder of cultural connectivity & curation Siobhan Kane.   

Siobhan has been running YHRF as a platform for cultural happenings for 10 years now (!) – and incredibly does so entirely for the direct benefit of The Dublin Simon Community who will be supported by proceeds from ticket sales and collections at ALS this year.  

The YHRF programme has become a cherished and unique part of ALS – truly an event within the event –  hosting a wonderfully rich collection of thinkers, doers, singers, talkers & movers in the intimate parlour rooms of The Manor – The Front Room & The Library.

This year’s programme builds on what has come before with an eclectic mix of all that is good & interesting in Ireland & beyond – including, as is tradition, some very special guests & luminaries :

TALKS & PRESENTATIONS in The Library from 

Kevin Barry | Brian Cross (B+) | Banter w/ Jim Carroll feat. Karl Whitney & Sarah McKenna | Ian Maleney | Maria Somerville | Alasdair Roberts | Peter Toomey  & more. 

MUSIC in The Front Room by

KINDRED is presented with the very kind assistance of the Arts Office of Meath County Council.

My Love Story feat. Toby Hatchett

My Love Story is our annual short film series chronicling the lives and passions of the the people who make Another Love Story what it is.

Clonakilty resident Toby Hatchett has been creating his stunning hi fi, and often sculptural soundsystems in his West Cork workshop, and luckily for us bringing them to ALS for a number of years now.

Each soundsystem is the perfect marriage and realisation of his passion for design, craftsmanship and hi fi sound – their presence at the festival has elevated the sound and appearance of our stages far beyond any standard sound installation could hope to.

They add a richness of atmosphere in any room they grace, and become as much a part of the performance as any act.

Toby has a long history of working on and devising divilment at festivals as a producer and dj – his My House venues and parties – run by a tight crew led by his wife Jess – are a trademark collection of irrevent craic, brilliant music, incredible design and sound. They are very often, literally the life and soul of the party.

Festivals are fleeting, ephemeral occurrences – so much of what happens behind the scenes goes by so fast and un noticed – so My Love Story looks to document the passions and stories of the people, like Toby, who make Another Love Story happen.

My Love Story feat. Toby Hatchett was produced with huge thanks to Bold Puppy Films.
