Blink and you might miss it, but every second April something remarkable takes place in Dublin for fans of jazz and experimental music.

Life on Inishbofin and Inishturk is precarious, adrift from the mainland and from the ancestral lifestyle of self-sufficiency, in search of a way forward or a way back to the past.
