We were hoping to offer Into the Silence in 2022, but covid had other plans once again.


Past Events:

Into the Silence: Music and Silence for the Winter Solstice

On the longest night of the year, Coracle and the Dummerston Congregational Church invite you to their annual program of contemplative music and silence featuring Celtic and original music. Coracle's music is inspired by the sea and the land, the many voices of Earth, the cycle of the seasons and the stillness of contemplation. We invite you to reconnect with the spirit of this magical time of the year, the time of deepest darkness and the returning of the light. All are welcome.


Voice of the Earth

The whole Earth is singing. The birds are singing. The trees are singing. The frogs and crickets are singing. The air is singing. The whales and seals are singing. And we too are singing. All voices of the voice of the Earth.

For millennia, humans have drawn inspiration from the voice of the Earth: the music of whales and seals, birds and insects, wind and forest. Using live music and nature sound recordings, we explore this amazing world of musical collaboration between humans and the many other voices of the Earth.

Through music we reconnect with Earth's common language. We become listeners and collaborators, friends and colleagues with plants and animals, with the whole movement of life. And that makes all the difference.
